How to upload a JAR file of an add-on for cloud JIRA

When submitting an add-on to market place i noticed that for both server and cloud version the .jar file can be submitted.

The same .jar file can be used to test in server version

But when i try to upload the add-on as a jar file in cloud version, it does not accept it.

You cannot upload a JAR file to the Atlassian Marketplace to be installed in Cloud instances. Only Atlassian Connect add-ons can be installed on Atlassian Cloud instances; they use descriptor files.


Hi Robert, So if I choose to upload just the .jar file, the marketplace will not allow the cloud instances to install the plugin?

That is correct. .jar files are built using Plugins 2. Atlassian Connect add-ons on the other hand can be installed in Cloud.
