How to know if a JIRA plugin is being used


I have a plugin that provides gadgets. However, I don't if this plugin is actually being used by some users or not.

Is there any query where I can find if there are instances of gadgets provided by this plugin?

Thanks in advance,

Gadget types are identified by a FQN like string like "com.whatever:mygadgetname".

If I were you:

  1. Try to find which database table contains the dashboard to gadget instances relations
  2. Filter through that for gadget type you are after

 I don't know the details of the underlying database schema, and the relations may be more complicated than what I suggest above, but the method I suggest should work regardless.

Actually I got a tip  and this do the trick:

SELECT portalpage, gadget_xml, count(*) FROM portletconfiguration WHERE gadget_xml LIKE '%YOUR-PLUGIN-KEY%' GROUP BY portalpage, gadget_xml;

Cool, then mark this answer with the checkmark so that future users will find the solution.
