Autocomplete stopped working after upgrade to JIRA 8


I have a text field which is autocomplete enabled using JS and my code looks as follows:

jQuery( function() {

jQuery('<input field>').autocomplete({
source: function( request, response ) {
jQuery.ajax( {
url: "<REST Path for getting the projects>",
dataType: "json",
data: {
"query" : request.term
success: function (data) {
response( data.projects, function ( item ) {
return {
label:' ('+item.key+')' ,
value :
select: function( event, ui ) {
jQuery('<input field>'').val(ui.item.value);
} );
} );

As is obvious, I am trying to autocomplete and list down the projects and print it in "Project name (Project key)" format.

I am getting the following error: "Uncaught TypeError: jQuery(...).autocomplete is not a function".

Pls suggest. Thank you.
