Do you have any links on the file or is it duplicated in some way?  Has the file got the same class named twice?

It's generally because you have a class with code outside the class, so the compiler generates a class for the class in the file, and a script class with the same name, eg this will cause it if a file called Foo.groovy.

class Foo {}

new Foo()

I don't have anything new Class_Name() in the file. This is working without any issue on 6.2 & script listner 2.1.17 When I did upgrade on staging, this issue started. I have copied my groovy files from /opt/... to /var/... I was able to update those successfully if I do Jira restart. However if i try to do update script runner files next day, it throws same error.

I'm using below line- Logger log = Logger.getLogger(AddReporterAsWatcher.class) I hope this will not cause any issue. Do i need to delete files from old path?

also if i keep those files under /var/atlassian/applicaiton-data/jira/scripts it does not throw mentioned. as of not those i are kept in /var/atalassian/applicaiton-data/jira/scripts/com/icg/

It depends what the package name in the class is... what is it? They should only be there once in the script root.

more details>> restart jira >> add/update custom listner files >> no duplicate class error create a jira issue which meets condition in the class file now again >> add/update custom listner files >> duplicate class name error if i do restart then it does not throw error conditionally ticket has not been created after restart

> Do i need to delete files from old path? Probably, yes.

Rename the file to some other name, dont keep class name and file name same ! will solve the problem.
