where i can download the atlassian-jira.6.1 Jar download?


i have created one report plugin to retrieve the values of custom fields by taking the fix version values as input. we are using jira 5.0.7 but planning to migrate to jira 6.1. I have checked the report plugin with jira 6.1 in testing instance but not working. I know this is because the plugin generated in 5.0.7 the jars are different(used atlassian-jira.5.0.7 jar). i have to generate this same report plugin using atlassian-jira.6.1 jar.

Kindly Suggest me where i can download this jar.

atlassian-jira dependency is not available from JIRA6. Use this instead:


jira-core is not recommended unless you absolutely need it and so start with jira-api. jira-api is the stable API and should have most APIs you need.

There should be no need for you to "download the jar for 6.1".

If you're writing code, you include it as a dependency/import. If you're running Jira, then Christian's answer is correct - you should be downloading the appropriate version of the software and installing it as per documentation.


I am not sure if I understand the question correctly. But if you are upgrading your plugin from 5.0.7 to 6.1, go to your pom.xml and find <jira.version> and <jira.data.version> property and change it to 6.1.

Then running atlas-debug or atlas-run will run your plugin against JIRA version 6.1

Note: If <jira.data.version> is not found in your plugin.xml, ignore it. Just change <jira.version>

Thank you


If I'm not wrong, you are using Jira 5.0.7 , your plugin is supported for it . Now you need to make it work for Jira 6.1 and you want Jira 6.1 ?

You download Jira 6.1 from the link posted by Christian Czaia and also make code changes in your plugin according to the 6.1 API and also do change <jira.version> to 6.1 as said by Bhushan Nagaraj and build it in the prompt.

Note: latest sdk only support for 6.0.8 see https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/atlassian-plugin-sdk-windows/versions
