The Atlassian Answer harrassment email robot has been on my back about this one...

I contacted the vendor at the time I posted this and didn't receive a response. I've long since abandoned trying to use this plugin.

Hey there, Glenn.

I noticed that it has been a while since you received any response here. Therefore, I would recommend you to contact the plugin vendor to get your query answered.

Hope this helps and good luck.
