How to connect user-installed plugins to Jira

We had used Jira (5.0.7) and Concluence (4,2) for several months in our office Ubuntu server and now came to a need to add Bamboo, FishEye, other plugins in the project usage.

All of them were installed as User-installed Plugins long ago using universal plugin manager (now 2.7.6).

The Greehopper was available automatically and we use Agile.

In Bamboo configuration: when clicked there is a message

You do not currently have any Bamboo application links configured. Click here to add one.

When adding linking there it offers to add application link to another server.

One need to enter something. If current jira server is entered there is the following message:

This application has the same ID as myself. Can't create link to myself.

Here it becomes not clear what shall be entered, and what means "Enabled"? and "50 of 50 modules enabled" if one goes into Manage Plugins details?

Was it downloaded and installed already? If yes - where is Bamboo ?

Or it means something else? (e.g. download addtionally and inslall manually?)

We spend quite some time looking for this answers but could not find strightforward explanation of this situation.

The same questions exist for JIRA FishEye/Stash Plugin, Crucible.

Please help providing guidance, looks as simple but fairly uneasy situation.

Hi Elena,

Only Greenhopper is a JIRA plugin, so installing it will give you the Agile tab and Greenhopper functionality as expected. However, FishEye and Bamboo are actually separate standalone applications that need to be installed on a server in the same way you have installed JIRA and Confluence, and the plugins that you have installed in your JIRA instance are only to facilitate the connection between JIRA and those applications.

If you need to configure a full suite of our applications, you might find our tutorial on installing the Atlassian suite of some benefit:

All the best,
