Hi Ashi,

There might be multiple causes of this failed plugin initialization, in order to narrow down the root cause of the issue you would need to review JIRA logs which is located in <JIRA_HOME_Dir>/logs/atlassian-jira.log.

You could also try the following troubleshooting steps and see how it goes:

  1. Shutdown JIRA
  2. Remove the following files:

    These are temporary files and folders and will be recreated when JIRA starts.

  3. Ensure that your JVM_MINIMUM and MAXIMUM is at least 1024
  4. Re-start JIRA

Hope it helps.
