Autoblocks for Jira Server and DC

Installing the App

Note: You must be an admin to install AutoBlocks for Jira.

There are two ways to install AutoBlocks for Jira:

  • From your Jira instance (recommended)

  • Via file from the Atlassian Marketplace

AutoBlocks for Jira Server supports the standard Jira installation requirements.

In addition, AutoBlocks requires the installation of a Java Development Kit (JDK) in order for automations to be created.

When you access AutoBlocks for Jira, the app will check if a JDK exists. If a JDK is not found, you are prompted to install the Adaptavist Java Tools app. If you approve, the app installs a JDK onto your Jira server as well as an app that can be managed via the Manage Apps page in your Jira instance.

  1. Log in to your Jira instance as an admin.

  2. Select Add-ons (or Manage Apps for Jira 8 users) from the admin drop-down list.
