How do I use JIRA Suite Utilities and other Add-Ons?

I have enabled JIRA Suite Utilities, Calendar, and Charting add-ons though I'm having trouble actually using them. The wiki configuration guide does not have instructions for the OnDemand version of these plug-ins.

Hello Ethan,

Let's start with one because the usage should not change too much from onpremise to ondemand. For instance if you

  • go to one of your existing workflow (In Administration)
  • create a Draft
  • click on an existing transition
  • click add postfunction

You should see, amongst the others, the postfunctions provided by Jira Suite Utilities

If NOT it means that the plugin has not been installed correctly and we can move from there.


Hi Marco,

Thanks for the quick answer, it works as expected! Any tips on the Charting and Calendar plug-ins?


let's try the following:

Calendars Plugin

try to go to one of your projects, and you should be able to see the calendar project tab

Charting Plugin

provides reports and gadgets

  • create a test dashboard
  • click add gadget
  • look for the Workload Pie Chart (provided by the charting plugin)

Same as before, if don't see the expected result it probably means that there is an installation issue
