Diagnostic Steps

  • When enter safe mode, all the gadgets are shwon


  • Caused by a plugin called Gantt-Chart Project for JIRA - Enterprise Edition
  • Compatibility issue on JIRA 7
  • The module for this add-on is the root cause for this issue. Soyatec Project Portfolio Gadget (soyatec-portfolio-gadget) and Soyatec Resource Gadget(soyatec-resource-gadget). By only disabling this two modules from the add-ons, gadgets can be shown fine again.


  • Remove the plugin
  • Alternatively disable Soyatec Project Portfolio Gadget (soyatec-portfolio-gadget) and Soyatec Resource Gadget(soyatec-resource-gadget) modules from the JIRA Administrator > Add-on > Manage Add-on > Gantt-Chart Project for JIRA - Enterprise Edition > Expand the module listing, gadgets can be shown fine again.
