Uncaught exception thrown by REST service: Cannot remove an enabled plugin

Andrei [errno] Community Champion May 15, 2014

trying to remove a plugin that is incompatible after an upgrade.
It is disabled now, but while trying to remove it using UPM I get:

What course of action should I take?
is it safe to stop jira, remove a jar from installed-plugins and then re-start and re-index?

thanks

Yes. If you cannot remove it from the UPM, stop JIRA and remove it from $JIRA_HOME/.../installed-plugins

Hi Andrei,

checking the log it seems that you can't unistall this plugin because there's another plugin that depends from. Did u try simply to restart your JIRA instance?

Hope this helps,

Fabio
