Why custom plugin disables all plugins during installation?

Hello,

Whenever I do an install of a plugin developed by me, I encounter the following situation: all plugins are disabled and some of them don't start-up until I manually enable them.

After looking into the logs I got into this message:
"To disable plugins <my-plugin-key>, we need to first disable all dependent enabled plugins: [<big list with all plugins enabled in Jira and groovyrunner> ].

The issue is that my plugin has no dependency whatsoever on any other plugin.

My expectation was that all plugins would remain enabled during and after my plugin installation.

Can anyone give me some clues regarding this behavior? Where should I look into my plugin to solve this pseudo-dependency.

Thanks for support

Hi Cornelia,

Without looking into some source code or knowing what your plugin actually does. I don't think we are able to provide any suggestions or clues on what to look for.

May I know were there any other log entries during the same period of the issue so that we might be able to get more clues on this?

Perhaps you could also post your question to the Atlassian Developer Community so that you get more eyes on your issue.

Additionally, were you facing this issue as well if you build a simple hello world app such as the one in the link below?

Hi,

Sorry to answer you so late. Thank you for the advice, I will post my question to the Atlassian Developer Community as well.

As for my plugin, it is an old one, it started from Jira 3, it was updated every time and it worked very well until we updated Jira from version 7.13.2 to 8.13.0. I updated the plugin according to the API and it works fine, except for the problem described above.

There are no other log entries.

Only this plugin causes problems, others are fine.

The plugin has: "web-section", "web-item", "resource", "web-resource", "servlet" and "rest" tabs on atlassian-plugin.xml. It creates custom projects in Jira.

This is the pom.xml file:
