The JIRA Agile source can not be build directly after download from


In the source folder, we only ship the JIRA Agile plugin itself so most of the dependency and component are not shipped.


Here are some steps for it:

  1. In the parent directory, execute
mvn install --non-recursive

You will need to do it as most of the component is not shipped with the source directory that will need to retrieve it first

  2. Go to JIRA Agile directory

cd JIRA Agile

3. Initialize a dummy mercurial repo

hg init

4. Build the JIRA Agile

mvn install

  1. Sorry but this documentation is not valid .. the subfolder of the downloaded source is still called greenhopper.

    And also following this procedure JIRA Agile 6.4.5 and 6.6.0 are not able to build (sad)

  2. My two cents:

    • It should be noted that both pom.xml files (in the main and the greenhopper subfolder) should be changed to refer to official JIRA Agile version else the build fail due to some missing jars

    • You will also need to grab some JARs from support and install them in your local repository before the build will be successful.
