How can I deactivate an add-on by command line?


We have problems because after activating a plugin (Subversion plugin ALM) it has stated to indexing repositories and JIRA interface keeps locked for users. Thus we can't access as administrator to add-on management option to deactivate it.

It's possible to deactivate an add-on from command line?

You can shut down JIRA, then remove the add-on from the <JIRA HOME>/plugins/installed-plugins folder.

Thanks Boris! It worked!

Another method, more complex:
(!) Always backup your data before performing any modification to the database. If possible, try your modifications on a test server.

  1. Execute SQL query and find your plugin key

    SELECT * FROM pluginversion where pluginname like '%text%';
  2. Execute SQL query and disable plugin:

    INSERT into pluginstate (pluginkey, pluginenabled) VALUES ('&lt;pluginkey from query above&gt;','false');
  3. Restart JIRA


I can't locate table pluginversion in Confluence 5.8.4 as well as the latest v6.2.3. Has the approach changed or the table names are changed.
