resource files and plugin

In my search request view plugin I have a velocity template that has a reference to an xslt file i wrote, I'd like my plugin to install this xslt file automatically (ideally in "http://myserver:2990/jira/styles/)

I've tried adding a resource in atlassian-pugin.xml but I can't figure out which url to use to reference the xslt file.

<web-resource key="xslt-resources" name="Xslt Web Resources">
    <resource type="download" name="test.xslt" location="/xslt/test.xslt"/>

vm file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<?xml-stylesheet href="$webResourceManager.getStaticPluginResource("com.myplugin:xslt-resources","test.xslt")" type="text/xsl"?>


You can take a look at

You can add param <param name="batch"value="false"/> and then refer to the resource using the url pattern given in the documentation:


Can I use the resource from the velocity template this way?

Yes, you can. I can provide you with some sample code for atlassian-plugin.xml and the vm file if you give me an example of what you want to achieve exactly.

Here is my velocity template (A modified version of the standard view issues xml) , I would like to have my xslt file instead of MYSTYLESHEET,

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<?xml-stylesheet href="MYSTYLESHEET" type="text/xsl"?>

<rss version="0.92">



## Ensure we have no spaces around the link tag and its value. JRA-16175



#if ($rssLocale)



#if ($totalissue)

<issue start="$!{startissue}" end="$!{endissue}" total="$!{totalissue}"/>







this is the configuration in atlassian-plugin.xml

<web-resource name="xslt" i18n-name-key="" key="xslt">

<description key="xslt.description">.xslt resources for search request plugins</description>

<resource name="GroupByCategoriesEdt" type="download" location="xslt/GroupByCategoriesEdt.xslt">

<param name="batch" value="false"/>


<resource name="GroupByDeveloppeur" type="download" location="xslt/GroupByDeveloppeur.xslt">

<param name="batch" value="false"/>



I tried with <?xml-stylesheet href="$webResourceManager.requireResource("xslt:GroupByDeveloppeur")" type="text/xsl"?> but It doesent seem to work, in the console it tells me "Cannot find we resource module for: xslt:GroupeByDeveloppeur"

Thanks for your help
