JIRA Upgrade v4.4 to v5.2 Plugin Issues

Neil Taylor Community Leader Jul 23, 2013

Hi Everyone -

I'm upgrading JIRA from 4.4 to 5.2 and am encountering some workflow errors in my test instance post upgrade. I believe it has to do maybe with JIRA Suite Utilities or JIRA Workflow Toolbox...maybe both... Anyone have any experience with this or know how to remedy the situation?

Thanks!

Neil

Error in JIRA when trying to transition the workflow:

Could not load validator class

Here is the error in the logs:

Neil,

We can't know for sure, since this plugin is not developed by Atlassian. However, it's worth check all the conditions, validators, pre-functions and post-functions for at least one workflow that is having problem. If you see any error on it, we will know for sure the problem is being caused by a deprecated class on the new Workflow Toolbox version.

If it works, you can try to modify the workflows via XML. Since you have many workflows, it will still require a lot of work, but it will be faster than editing via UI.

Best regards,
Lucas Timm

it seems the problem with the validator in "JIRA Workflow Toolbox" plugin,

did you updraded this plugin which is compactable to the jira 5.2 version?

if you already upgraded to latest version then just remove that validator and reconfigure

Neil Taylor Community Leader Jul 25, 2013

Hello - Yes - I upgraded the plugin. Any easier ways to do this than manually go through every workflow and remove/reconfigure validators?

This would not be ideal simply because we have 100+ workflows and some with many, many transitions that would all have to be gone through.

Hi Neil,

Can you try the steps below?

  1. Shutdown JIRA;
  2. Remove the content of the following directories:
    - $JIRA_HOME/plugins/.bundled-plugins
    - $JIRA_HOME/plugins/.osgi-plugins
    - $JIRA_HOME/tmp
    - $JIRA_INSTALL/work
  3. Then, browse to $JIRA_HOME/plugin/installed-plugins and remove all the JAR files from JIRA Workflow Toolbox;
  4. Start JIRA and re-install JIRA Workflow Toolbox through Administration -> Add-Ons -> Manage Add-Ons.
  5. Check if it will work after that. :)

Best regards,
Lucas Timm

Hi Lucas,

Tried your suggestion, but still facing the same issue. Could the XML used in the workflows for the plugin have changed what it's calling in the new version?

Thanks!

Neil
