The plugin key must either match the OSGi bundle symbolic name or be specified

JIRA Startup Failed

Error occurred while starting Plugin Manager. The plugin key 'jira-gadget-tutorial-plugin' must either match the OSGi bundle symbolic name (Bundle-SymbolicName) or be specified in the Atlassian-Plugin-Key manifest header caused by: The plugin key 'jira-gadget-tutorial-plugin' must either match the OSGi bundle symbolic name (Bundle-SymbolicName) or be specified in the Atlassian-Plugin-Key manifest header.
 
I've even tried cloning the jira-issues gadget and it gives the same error.

The code in that tutorial is mostly valid, but is out of date, it sort of stopped working with version 6.  You have to change the pom.xml and other bits to update it to make it with later versions of JIRA

That's what I figured, but I couldn't find any up-to-date guides. Do you know of any? If not, what would I need to change from that tutorial?

It's been a while since I tried it.  I remember the way to go was to use the current SDK to create the plugin skeleton, and then only use the java code in it.  The rest I had to work out for myself.

So once I've created a skeleton plugin, what can I change to modify my gadget? Should I just leave everything and only touch the JS file?

That's a good start, but I think you need to go over the atlassian-plugin.xml and possibly add something to the pom.xml

Any update on this problem? I am running into the same while trying to follow the gadget tutorial.
