My log is flooded with "Notification exists for uninstalled and unrequested plugin" messages


My log is flooded with "[] Notification exists for uninstalled and unrequested plugin: com.almworks.jira.plugin.jiraclient" messages and this makes it very hard to read. The JiraClient plugin is uninstalled and I have tried the solution here, but there was no results from the sql queries

Any ideas how to get rid of these messages?

As far I remember I deleted only .osgi-plugins.

I'll try deleting them both again and let you know about the result.

Thank you for your quick answer!

I found that here:

It says that it is required to do when a big change it's made. And people request is about having a button to do that.

You did the 2 folders? I found this:

Please perform the following:

  • Shut down JIRA
  • Delete the following hidden plugin cache directories:
  • Restart JIRA (These directories will be recreated on JIRA reboot with new plugin cache)

I just have found the plugin in /opt/atlassian/jira/temp directory.

Is it safe to delete files in this directory also?

Just in case make a copy of that folder... Usually Jira creates missing folders when is restarted... If that doesn't work you can put the folder again there.


messages for jiraclient plugin are gone after deleting the both folders


and the content of /opt/atlassian/jira/temp


And there are messages about other plugin. I'll digg in that later.

Now my log is full with same messages, but for other plugins. I really need other way of clear my log, it is very unreadable this way. I delete these folders every week, and nothing happens - the messages are still there.
