I can't figure out why BrowseContext or JiraHelper injection doesn't work in this case (for example UserManager is injected ok in the servlet). But you can add query parameters to the web-item link inside atlassian-plugin.xml:

<link linkId="iq-propagate-component-link">/plugins/servlet/iq-propagate?pid=${}&amp;key=${project.key}</link>

Thank so much for your answer, now I have projectKey.


Best regards.

Have you correctly injected your BrowseContext?

I mean component-import in the atlassian-plugin.xml or @Inject and @ComponentImport annotations if you're using atlassian-spring-scanner?

<component-import key="browseContext" name="Browse Context Interface" interface="com.atlassian.jira.project.browse.BrowseContext


<description>Provides access to browse context</description>



what exactly doesn't work? Do you have any errors, e.g. NullPointerException? How is your servlet described in the atlassian-plugin.xml?

Hi Aleksandr,


Thanks for your reply :)


My problem is that I don,'t have clase or method which get project key.

I try with projectService but don't have method for my problem, also I try with BrowseContext but If I try add in my contructor is null in my Servlet


Best regards

In the log show the below:


never resolved service '&browseContext' with filter '(&(objectClass=com.atlassian.jira.project.browse.BrowseContext)(objectClass=com.atlassian.jira.project.browse.BrowseContext))'


I'm using atlassian-spring-scanner:

public class ComponentSyncAdmin extends HttpServlet {

private final BrowseContext browserContext;

private final ComponentSyncService componentSyncService;
private static final Logger log = LoggerFactory.getLogger(ComponentSyncAdmin.class);

public ComponentSyncAdmin(ComponentSyncService componentSyncService, BrowseContext browserContext) {
this.componentSyncService = checkNotNull(componentSyncService);
this.browserContext = checkNotNull(browserContext);


protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse res)

throws ServletException, IOException {

Project project = browserContext.getProject();


I have a mistake using ComponentImport?


Best regards

I add defintion web item


<!-- Link in tab panel project's administrator -->
<web-item key="iq-propagate-component" name="Propagate Component"
section="atl.jira.proj.config/projectgroup3" weight="200">
<description key="iq-propagte-component-desc">Configure propagate</description>
<label key="Propagate Component" />
<link linkId="iq-propagate-component-link">/plugins/servlet/iq-propagate</link>

Í add too my servlet definition:

 <!-- Servlet to management plugin -->
<servlet name="Issue CRUD" i18n-name-key="" key="issue-crud"
<description key="issue-crud.description">The Issue CRUD Plugin</description>
