How-to: Deleting the JIRA Plugin Cache

logoJIRAPNGGermany-Flag-iconSometimes JIRA add-ons cannot be updated using the Universal Plugin Manager or the startup fails due to strange plugin related errors. In such situations – and all other kinds of plugin related weirdnesses – manually deleting the JIRA plugin cache often helps to resolve the problems. In the following article we provide a step-by-step guide. So read on to see how to do this.

Step-by-step guide on deleting the JIRA Plugin Cache

  1.  Stop JIRA
  2. Delete the following folders:
    • JIRA_HOME/plugins/.bundled-plugins
    • JIRA_HOME/plugins/.osgi-plugins
  3. Start JIRA

Quick warning: please do not delete the folder installed-plugins as this will result in errors. The procedure is the same for Linux and Windows Servers.

Müssen bei Jira Data Center dann auch die Ordner
• JIRA_SharedHome/plugins/.bundled-plugins
• JIRA_SharedHome/plugins/.osgi-plugins
gelöscht werden?
