java.lang.NoSuchFieldError: USED_USER after upgrade from 5.1.7 to 5.2

I have tried to upgrade our JIRA test environment from 5.1.7 to 5.2. After configuration, build and deployment I have got the following error in the tomcat log:

I have found missing USED_USER field in the source code (5.2) of the class com.atlassian.jira.user.UserHistoryItem. But I didn't found a class UserHistoryItem in the WAR or build environment.

Did I make a mistake?

Removing of the plugins was my 2nd idea after cleaning Tomcat work directory but this doesn't help.

But I have found my mistake. In edit-webapps directory I have found a jira-api-5.1.7.jar under WEB-INF/lib. I do not know how it get there but after I removed it and build, cleaned and deployed JIRA everything was fine.

Thanx for your help.

Hi there,

From the problem description, it sounds like you are running on JIRA WAR installation type, can you kindly confirm this? If this is true, then may I know if you have clear Tomcat's work directory after upgrading JIRA to 5.2?

If you haven't performed the steps yet, can you kindly try to clear the work directory, restart Tomcat and see if it helps?

Cheers.

Hi,

thanx for your answer. You are right it's a WAR installation. I have already cleared the work directory and restarted Tomcat but it doesn't help.

Here my environment:

Linux CentOS 6.2
JIRA 5.2 WAR
Tomcat 6
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_37-b06)
Database Oracle XE 11.2.0.2.0

Best regards.

Hi,

Thanks for your input on this.

To be honest, I haven't seen such exceptions before. However, since clearing the work directory doesn't help, I have my suspicion that this perhaps may be caused by:
- incompatible third party plugin
- JIRA plugin cache issue

Therefore, may I know if the 5.2 installation is using the same home directory as JIRA 5.1.7? If this is true, then can you kindly check if all of the deployed third party plugin is compatible with JIRA 5.2? You may check for the plugin version compatibility with JIRA by going to https://marketplace.atlassian.com

And also, you can try to clear the plugin cache by performing the following steps:
- Go to $JIRA_HOME/plugins
- Clear the content of .bundled-plugins and .osgi-plugins
- Restart JIRA, and the removed files will be recompiled again

Kindly let us know how it goes.

Removing of the plugins was my 2nd idea after cleaning Tomcat work directory but this doesn't help.
