  1. These instructions are terrible - why is there not a single link to install the JIRA plugin?

  2. I support upper. The worst instructions I've ever seen.

  3. Why is there no screenshots? What do you mean by Navigate to the Add-ons page in the administration console? Double-clicking on atlassian-bonfire-plugin-2.9.0.jar and typing java -jar atlassian-bonfire-plugin-2.9.0.jar on Windows 8.1 produces nothing.
