Find the file and remove the plugin from the zip file.

Nic - some are not turn-offable but you may not want them. Can't think of an example though...

Going to try also this and will let you know if it was sucess.

This works. I found the file, unziped, erased plugins. Then placed to folder edit-webapp/WEB-INF/classes and rebuild the war. Thanks

It is possible to add "remove file X" to the build scripts.

Question is - why? The bundled plugins fall into two groups - ones that you need and ones you can easily turn off in the UI. I can't think of a reason why you'd want to go to the effort of doing this when it's easier to simply turn them off after installation.

Thanks for tip. I'm going to try this. I need it because I have non standard deployment with Jira 5.2 on jboss 4 and I cannot get Universal Plugin Manager started so I need to remove unwanted plugins from bundled package.

What script should I edit? I looked in build.xml and fund nothing about bundled plugins there.
