Versions < 2.0

Install the plugin by copying the JAR to WEB-INF/lib inside your JIRA web application and restart JIRA.

Version 2.0 and above

Starting with version 2.0, the plugin is a "type TWO" plugin, which means that the plugin can be installed by copying it to jira-home/plugins/installed-plugins or, better yet, from the excellent Atlassian Universal Plugin Manager.

Upgrading from 1.x to 2.x


If you are upgrading from version 1.x to version 2.0 or above, you must make sure that you delete jira-misc-workflow-extension-1.x.jar from atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/lib before installing the new version in jira-data/plugins/installed-plugins.

Also note that the Universal Plugin Manager will not offer to upgrade from version 1.x automatically.
