Atlassian Plugin Test Console and QuickReload

This question is in reference to Atlassian Developer Documentation: Run Wired Tests with the Plugin Test Console

Enabling QuickReload requires disabling FastDev. But without Fastdev, the Plugin Test Console no longer works.

Is there another way to run integration tests in the running instance?

Hi guys,

same problem here, I might have a solution.
The plugin test console tries to call FastDev at 'rest/fastdev/1.0/reload/withtests' to reload the test classes.
As the job is already done by QuickReload, all you need is a plugin that answers a 204 to this call.

What you need is :

  • create a plugin with the following REST module :
<rest key="rest-resource-withtest" path="/fastdev" version="1.0"/>
  • add the following class in the plugin:
public class FastDefReloadWithTests {
	public Response withTest() {
		return Response.status(Response.Status.NO_CONTENT).build();
  • package install the plugin somewhere in a maven repo
  • add it as pluginArtifact in the amps configuration in your original plugin

This worked fine for me. I just have to mvn package my changes so that quickreload detects it. When it's done the console runs the new version of my tests.

Hope this helps.

Many thanks!

Also added excluding XSRF protection.

public class FastDefReloadWithTests {

public Response withTest() {
return Response.status(Response.Status.NO_CONTENT).build();

I've implemented Christophe Merlotti's proposal as a small Jira plugin, which is free to use. Just add the following to the maven-jira-plugin in your POM:


If you try to run unit tests from the console, they will fail. Use for the wired tests only.

You can see the source code at and my example plugin, which uses this, is stored under A tutorial that explains how this was developed is about to be published under

Thank you a lot!

Sorry the test console is not working, I've logged this as

Same here... how can we run Wired tests with quickreload?

My plugin has now been accepted in to the Atlassian marketplace. See

The instructions for use are as in Christophe Merlotti's answer above.

In theory, it should be possible to invoke the wired tests using a REST API. You'd have to put the inspector on while running the console to see what it triggers when you press "rerun all wired test classes".

I am looking for the same inforamtion too! How to run any type of integration/functional tests from inside already started and running JIRA.
