Hey there, EDE.

With that being the case, can you give the manual installation a try to see if it helps:


Not to forget, make sure you perform the following after the installation to clear off the plugin cache. See if it helps:

  1. Shutdown JIRA instance
  2. Delete the contents of JIRA Home Directory\plugins\.osgi-plugins directory
  3. Delete the contents of JIRA Home Directory\plugins\.bundled-plugins directory
  4. Delete the contents of JIRA Installation Directory\work directory
  5. Restart JIRA instance

Warm regards,
