Plugin issue after upgrade to jira 6

We have an in house developed plugin that connects to a database in another server to pull data for a custom field.

In jira5 the database connection info for this plugin was located in server.xml in the following format


After updating to jira 6 that connection info wasnt migrated, and I have no idea where to specify it, any ideas?

customisations are not copied while migrating so you need to manually copy the this code to server.xml which will be located at ..../JIRA/conf/server.xml

i suggest to don't public your username and password for public :)

I'll try that, and dont worry, that username/pass is bogus :)

did you restarted after made changes on server.xml?
