Enabling Labs Features in JIRA 5.2

A Labs feature is a feature that is currently in development, but previewed in the product. For more information about JIRA Labs, see Labs Features in JIRA.

In JIRA 5.2, some Labs features need to be enabled by configuring a "dark feature" property. This can only be done by JIRA administrators or JIRA system administrators.

Enabling a Labs feature in JIRA 5.2

  1. Log in as a user with the JIRA Administrators or JIRA System Administrators global permission.
  2. Go to the URL in your browser and enter the following address:
    <hostname>/secure/admin/SiteDarkFeatures!Default.jspa
    e.g. http://jira.examplecompany.com/secure/admin/SiteDarkFeatures!Default.jspa
  3. Enter your password when prompted.
  4. In the Enable dark feature field, enter the property of the dark feature that you want to enable. This will look something like this, jira.search.kickass
  5. Click Submit.
