add javascript file as webresource in plugin,

webresource module:

&lt;web-resource key="test-js" name="javascript"&gt;
        &lt;resource name="test.js" type="download" location="templates/js/test.js" /&gt;


A lot of thanks.

is it helped?

Don't do that. Create an issue and attach that JavaScript and use the path of that script in your custom field. This will make sure that it survives upgrades.

If I understand you, you want that I create a new issue with the unique purpose of upload a attached script, after updates jira will maintain the uploaded files directory, so this scripts will continue working, is this ok?
