Hi Venu,

Unfortunately it looks like the screenshot of your log file doesn't contain the info relevant to the error you're seeing in the Add-on Manager.

Based on what you're seeing in JIRA itself, I might recommend checking the permissions on JIRA's HOME directory. The account JIRA is running under needs to have write access to the entire directory - if it's unable to write plugin downloads, it's possible you might see something like this.

Otherwise, I think we will need to see more of your log file (tools like are helpful for dumping large portions of your log if needed) to figure out what's happening.


Thank you Very much Daniel for your Quick response . I will check that by giving write permissions to the JIRA home directory and let you know . 

Hi Daniel,

 Thanks for your support . Its working fine now.Iam able to install the pugins.

Thanks & Regards,
