Why did 'JIRA Importers Plugin (JIM) 4.1.4' stop working?

We use JIRA with license: JIRA: Evaluation. Just trying and testing before we purchase license of JIRA and implement in our company.

At the beginning we have installed plugin: JIRA Importers Plugin.

We`ve done some tests of importing data by CSV files.

Suddenly the plugin has been disabled. It has dissapeared from list of "Imports and Exports".

We have tried to reinstall the plugin.

After this operation we got a message:

"The plugin has been installed but cannot be enabled. Please refer to the logs for more information."

Then we try to manually enable the plugin.

Then we got a message:

"This plugin failed to enable. Your license may be invalid. Please refer to the logs for more information."

Then we try to enable the plugin once again. We got a message:

"This plugin was successfully enabled."

At list of "Imports and Exports" new item appears. Items of the list:

-> Backup System

-> Restore system

-> Project import

-> jira-importer-plugi.. // when we first install the plugin ( it works correctly ) label here was displayed properly

When we click at the link jira-importer-plugi.. we got an error message:

So now we cannot import any data from our BugTracker.

I had the same problem. Had to uninstall - reinstall.

Note: After reinstall jira stops working. Bunch of exceptions at the top of the page.

Restarting jira worked and I had to uninstall the plugin for the second time.

After that I could reinstall the plugin without restarting jira.

CSV import now works.

OK, have solved it although I don't know the cause of the problem. Here's what I did.

Unistalled plugin

shutdown jira

restarted jira

re-downloaded the plugin

things seem to be ok now - fingers crossed :-)

Norman

After plugin was disabled.

I found in log file 'catalina.out' something like that:

Any progress on this?, I'm using Jira 5.0.4 & after updating the plugins the JIM plugin is marked as disable, I removed it and downloaded the current version as shown by the plugin library & am getting the error reported by Michal.

This is rather an important plugin for us at the moment as we use it to import user stories for new projects.

Norman

@Norman What version of the JIM are you using?

It could be a compatibility problem with the versions!

@Norman What version of the JIM are you using?

I would guess your evaluation license has reached its time limit based upon the messages you provided. I would ask Atlassian if they would extend your evaluation license or spent the $10 and modify your import data to live with the 10 user limit to show your proof of concept, so you can get your bigger license cost approved.

I'm running Jira 5.0.4 - latest version (unlimited license) and the version of the Importers plugin that the plugins installer gets me to install is apparently 4.2

To clarify a bit, I was using v4.1.4 of the Importers plugin, yesterday (28th May) Jira prompted me to update the plugin to v4.2, after I did this it stopped working.
