Using the Universal Plugin Manager (UPM) you can see a list of plugins installed on your Bamboo site. These include plugins that are bundled with Bamboo as well as any plugins that you have installed. Both enabled and disabled plugins are displayed.

Viewing your installed plugins

To view your installed plugins:

  1. Click the Manage Existing tab. You will see a list of the plugins installed in your application.
    • The plugins are grouped into 'User-installed Plugins' and 'System Plugins'.
    • You can filter your list by entering keywords in the 'Filter visible plugins' text box.
    • The list of 'System Plugins' will be hidden by default. Click the Show System Plugins link to see them.
    • Enabled plugins will have this icon: Disabled plugins will have this icon:
    • Click the name of a plugin to view the plugin's details.
    • Click Enable Safe Mode to run your application in safe mode. This mode disables all user installed plugins.

Note that you can also see a list of the plugins that are enabled on your Bamboo server by clicking Administration and then System Information (under 'System').

Viewing a plugin's details

You can view the details for a plugin by clicking the name of a plugin in the list of installed plugins. The summary contains a short description of the plugin as well as links to plugin operations and related information.

  • Plugin key – A unique key that identifies each plugin in the system.
  • Developer — The name of the plugin developer and a link to the developer's home page, if provided by the plugin developer.
  • Plugin version – The version of the plugin currently installed.
  • Manage plugin modules — Click this link to display the plugin modules below the plugin summary. A module is a component of the plugin. This link will only appear if the plugin has modules. If you want to enable or disable a plugin module, hover your mouse over the module and click the 'Enable'/'Disable' button for that module.
  • Configure – Click this link to display the configuration settings for the plugin. This link is disabled if the plugin is disabled. Please note that not all plugins have settings that can be configured through the Universal Plugin Manager.
  • Disable – Click this button to disable the plugin in your application. This button will only appear if the plugin is enabled.
  • Enable – Click this button to enable the plugin in your application. This button will only appear if the plugin is disabled.
  • Uninstall – Click this button to uninstall the plugin from your application. This button will only appear for user installed plugins.


  • What is the difference between a 'system plugin' and a 'user installed plugin'?
    • System plugins are shipped with the application. These plugins are essential for the functioning of the system. Although you can disable some of them, you should not do so unless instructed by an Atlassian support engineer. Note: Not every system plugin can be disabled. You cannot uninstall any system plugins.
    • User installed plugins are those which have been installed in the application after it was set up. You can install a plugin either by uploading a JAR file or via the Universal Plugin Manager. You can uninstall these plugins.
