Can't update UPM

I have followed:

but can't find the necessary file/directory... here is a listing from our install:

1. Shut down JIRA.

2. Remove the existing UPM JAR file from this directory in your JIRA home directory:


root@libertine jira # pwd


root@libertine jira # ls

atlassian-jira conf install.reg lib logs README.html temp uninstall work

bin external-source jre licenses NOTICE README.txt tomcat-docs webapps

only thing I can find is:

root@libertine atlassian # find . -name *manager-plugin* -print










./jira/temp/plugin_281981356399172753_atlassian-universal-plugin-manager-plugin-2.7.10 (1).jar



just don't know where to pop the new jar file and don't want to break Jira :)

Hi Richard,

Looks like you are in the JIRA installation directory and not in the JIRA home directory.

In order to retrieve the location of your JIRA home directory, run the following on your terminal:

cat /opt/atlassian/jira/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/

This will get you something like:

jira.home = /Users/xxxx/Atlassian/data/jira524

Then in this directory, you will find the plugins/installed-plugins
