Installing Mercurial plugin for Jira

   I'm trying to install the Mercurial plugin at, but having some problems.  Not sure of the exactly Maven command line to use.  I tried install, but I get some errors:

We currently have Jira 7.4.4

Peter, your image didn't appear so I can't see what the problem was. I'm the original author of the plugin but I think it's been unsupported for years now, so no guarantee that it works with 7.4

I see a pull request for JIRA 7 support, nice.

Here's the image


My understanding was that it was now open source, not that it wasn't supported.   But ServiceRocket still appears all over, so it's hard to know where to go with questions.

CustomWare was renamed to ServiceRocket about three years ago. But it looks like it's failing to find jta.jar which is not customware related

Any idea why it can't find the jar?   Is there an error in a pom somewhere or some other configuration problem?   I don't know if I'm looking in the right place, but when I go to, I don't see version 1.0.1.  Only 1.0.1b.  But I'm not sure where that is specified

Can anyone help with this?  I can't figure out the problem.  I tried running a maven dependency tree, but it didn't help:

 Could not resolve dependencies for project net.customware.jira.plugins:mercurial-jira-plugin-parent:pom:5.3-SNAPSHOT: Failure to find jta:jta:jar:1.0.1 in

The pom file references jta 1.0.1b at  I can't figure out what is referencing jta 1.0.1, which is what it's having difficulty finding.

Haven't even looked into the problem with jira-rest-api yet

thanks for any help.  I'm totally stuck in getting this plugin built.

Hi @peterkronenberg,

Did you manage to have the plugin working.

If you're still interested, I think you should retrieve it from this repo/branch :

I'm testing it and it seems to work properly on a 7.6 instance.

I managed to build it, but it still didn't work.  I got exceptions on Jira when trying to run.  I'll try the repo you suggested.  Looks like they've been doing more work to support Jira 7.
