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
