Manual

What do you need to know if you use a SNAPSHOT version of one of our products?

Problem

Sometimes you want to participate in beta testing new releases of our products or it is not feasible to wait for the next Atlassian Marketplace release. In such (rare) cases, we will offer you to work with a SNAPSHOT version instead. SNAPSHOT versions are not known to the Atlassian Marketplace and thus are handled differently by the Universal Plugin Manager (UPM).

If you install a SNAPSHOT version of an add-on to your Confluence or Jira, you will no longer be notified of updates of that add-on in the Marketplace. Moreover you might not be able to install new versions via the Administration > Find new addons.

Environment

  • Any add-on installed in a SNAPSHOT version.
  • Any Server or Data Center deployment for Confluence/Jira, but no Cloud

Resolution

Download a released version from the Atlassian Marketplace. To do so, go to the Atlassian Marketplace listing and then go to "Versions". On this page you are able to download a specific released version of an add-on. Afterwards log in to Confluence/Jira as an administrator and go to Administration > Manage add-ons.
Uninstall the add-on using the UPM, also uninstall any bundled plugins that are installed in SNAPSHOT versions (see below). Now upload the downloaded artifact of the released version - this will either be a *.jar or *.obr file, depending on the add-on. After successful installation of the add-on, you'll be notified of new released versions as usual. 

Additionally you can also sign in to the Atlassian Marketplace, go to the relevant add-ons listing and click Watch app. This way you you'll make sure that you do not miss the release of an add-on update regardless of what is installed on your Confluence/Jira at the moment.
