Why is" Remotable Plugins I18n plugin" showing up as an User-installed Add-ons?

After installing Jira 6.0.3 and upgrading to Jira 6.0.4 I have noticed that the Remotable Plugin i18n plugin is showing up as an user-install plugin. This plugin was not explicitly requested and does not seem to exist in the marketplace.

Is anyone else seeing this plugin pop up as well? I am assuming it deals with language packs. Why is it showing up now? I also want to make sure it is not some trojan plugin since there are no modules associcated with it.

This plugin is showing up as unknown when doing the Jira update check, so I had some concerns when doing the upgrade.

Hi Norman,

The i18n remotable add-on is a bundled add-on in both JIRA and Confluence. In newest version of JIRA, this is showing up under user-install add-ons, but in Confluence it shows under system add-ons. It's definitely not a trojan or malicious in any way as it comes default with our products.

Hope this helps!

Hopefully, this plugin will be later be marked as a system plugin.

Hi Norman,

I' created an improvement request for this. It's most likely an easy fix and was probably an oversight on the classification of this add-on's metadata.



What does this plug-in do exactly?

I believe it was used to load language packs to internationalize Jira. It stopped existing around 6.1.1 or so.
