jQuery DataTable plugin in JIRA plugin

I'm trying to use the jQuery Datatable plugin with my JIRA custom plugin. When I try to initalize the dataTable I get an error in the console "Uncaught NotFoundError: Failed to execute 'appendChild' on 'Node': The new child element is null.

Does someone have a solution?

We're using jQuery datatables, but we also use custom jQuery version that is newer than the one bundled in JIRA, so first check the bundled jQuery version and if the version of Datatables is compatible.

Thank you for the hint! Ended up on solving the problem without the use of datatables.
