I am looking for something like:

# if jira.baseurl == "http://xxx"

CCC
#else

Well, if thats the question, the asnwer is that you can't embed velocity in your atlassian-plugin.xml, you can however have a webwork action, who's success/other response is redirected to a velocity template for rendering. For velocity syntax information, see : http://velocity.apache.org/engine/devel/user-guide.html

Um, your question doesn't quite make sense.

The title says you're trying to do something in atlassian-plugin.xml, but then you talk about some velocity code. Rather than try to unscramble this muddle, I'll try to break it into pieces

  • atlassian-plugin.xml is for settings in your plugins. It's an xml file, not velocity
  • The velocity is broadly the right idea, but
    • The "if" clause needs to be in ()
    • there's no spaces in directives (#if, not # if)
    • I think the jira.baseurl is correct, but don't rely on me
    • It does however, need to be a variable - $jira.baseurl
  • Your velocity needs to go into a velocity template file, somewhere within your plugin
