Is there a possibliity to check which plugins are really used? ( in workflows, fields, .... )
We are checking the compatibility of our plugin list to Jira 6.0 and this question came up ... I guess, this question is not soooo new ;)
There is no way that will be common across all plugins... eg:
For plugins that provide workflow functions, scan the XML of all workflows looking for the classnames in the plugin.
If you find any verify that those workflows are in use, and how many issues (recently updated preferably) use those workflows.
Possibly you might find even that the functions are used on a rarely-taken path in the workflow.
For custom fields count the number of instances and the number of values in those fields.
For plugins that add attachments, eg balsamiq, gliffy, count the number of attachments of the particular file type, eg .bmml.
In short, no easy way. Or, modify all plugins to call out to google analytics when they are invoked.
Here's another method that is disturbingly common in many organisations - disable the plugin and see what breaks or who complains.
