Upgraded to JIRA 9.15. Now manage apps/ upload button has disappeared.

gwalton_qinetiq_com May 7, 2024


I have JIRA Datacenter with service mgmt 

I upgraded the instance to the latest last week (9.15) service mgmt (5.15). But now I need to update git kraken as the devs are moaning that the branch integration on tickets has stopped working.


Under manage apps the upload app button has now gone. I have read this is intentional by Atlassian.

I have read you can get this button back by editing a system property

"The system admin can enable the functionality by setting the upm.plugin.upload.enabled system property to true ."


Where/how do I find this so I can change it to true?  


this is a article I have read

The same article has a comment pointing to https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRASERVER-77129 which leads to https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver/setting-properties-and-options-on-startup-938847831.html which is probably the most detailed on it.

So you basically need to add the jvm param to setenv.sh (or setenv.bat)
