JIRA Installation

Using the Universal Plugin Manager

The simplest way is to go to use the Universal Plugin Manager to install the plugin from the Atlassian Plugin Exchange. On the Install tab you can simply search for this plugin and install it, or Upload it using the Upload Plugin from either direct from our Nexus repository or from your own desktop.
After installation it is possible that you will be required to restart JIRA before the changes take affect.

By Hand

Save the downloaded *.jar file into the $JIRA_HOME/plugins/installed-plugins directory. You will then need to restart JIRA (many containers let you do this without restarting the container.)
