Groovy - No signature of method

We have recently upgraded Jira to 7.0.11 and few groovy scripts were not working in the new update. I did check the groovy script source code for errors causde by the changes to Jira API and fixed them, but still the ScriptRunner is throwing an error whenever I try to run the script.

Error from running the script:

No signature of method: com.nimblestorage.jira.PopulateQaContactListener.main() is applicable for argument types: ([Ljava.lang.String;) values: [[]] Possible solutions: wait(), wait(long), find(), any(), wait(long, int), init(java.util.Map)

Log from the Script Listener:

The following log information was produced by this execution. Use statements"...") to record logging information.

 Please tell me how to debug such error so that I can fix this issue. 

Thanks in advance.

com.nimblestorage looks like a class imported from an add-on.  You'll need to work out what was providing it and how to replace it.

Hey Nick, 
com.nimblestorage.jira is the namespace for the script -PopulateQaContactListener.groovy. It was running fine in the older vesrion but not in the new update. 
The stacktrace from running the script runner is as follows:

2017-04-18 08:14:08,030 WARN [common.UserScriptEndpoint]: Script console script failed:

I have just included a snippet of the top logs since there is a character limit in the forum. The stacktrace shows a total of 207 logged error.

Yes, I understand that, but the script is calling something in  "nimblespace" that is not right any more. 

It's not part of the script runner stuff, so how were you providing the library in the old version and how has it changed in a newer version of it?


Check the groovy build file is placed in the proper directory anf classpath set.
