Jira Documentation on how to write plugins

I am looking for the best place to learn how to write a Jira Plugin. Specifically, I would like to write a plugin that creates a custom calculated field. I have done the available tutorials for how to write a plugin but I was looking for some examples of how to use the Java API properly. Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi @Shannon ,

Writing plugins is actually a daunting task and long journey but don't fret there are a lot of resources out there.

For me, I looked at GitHub for sample source codes of the projects related to what I'm doing just doing a basic search will yield great results and subscribed to developer.atlassian.com for updates and some q&a.

Don't forget to familiarize the Java API and important classes from Atlassian.

Ok, thanks. I will try those things.

Do you know if there are any courses that someone could pay to take through Atlassian?
