How can I upgrade jira-rpc plugin to work with JIRA 6?

Hi All,

I'm using JIRA 4.3.3 and I have installed jira-rpc plugin 4.3.3. Also I have modified the plugin. Now I want to upgrade JIRA to latest version. I tried to install jira-rpc plugin to JIRA 6.3.12. I got following error while start up.

How can I install jira-rpc plugin to JIRA 6.3? If this plugin version is not compatible, what is the compatible plugin version?

It sounds like you tried to install the same version of the plugin. If so you need to check with the vendor/developer of the plugin to see if they have a version for 6.3 and start with that if they have one. Plugins often lag behind JIRA releases.

The jira-rpc-plugin is bundled with the JIRA 6 installation - you don't need to upgrade it as JIRA will always ship with a compatible version of this plugin built-in.
