jira configure tests server for plugin development

I'm developing a plugin, I've configured dbconfig.xml with our sql server test server. Everything works fine except that when I do an altas-clear I have to copy again the file by hand and reinstall all the plugins and copy by hand jtds drivers, is there a way to do that automatically?

Hi Angelo,

Copying files is something you can integrate in your build proces. Maven has a plugin that allows you to copy files from one directory to another:


You can for instance store the dbconfig.xml in a temp directory and include it in your target directory once the clean step has been done.

the anwer is perfect for the original question but I modified it to add the need of having a series of plugins installed

Can you give more information on you project structure? Do you wanna install multiple plugin-ins within the same project? Does each plugin had it's own project and separate maven config?

Hi Angelo,

Have a look at this tool:


This command allows you to create a zip from your current JIRA home directory and your zip package will be deployed everytime you run your JIRA server with: atlas-run.

Just make sure that your dbconfig.xml is also packaged in the JIRA home directory zip and it will be available when needed.
