In order to start building and testing Speakeasy Extensions, you'll first need to install Speakeasy on a JIRA or Confluence instance. You can do this via the plugin manager built into JIRA and Confluence. Search for "Speakeasy Plugin" and click "Install".
Run through the following steps to get the Speakeasy framework installed into an Atlassian application:
- Download and install the most recent Plugin SDK (v3.3).
- Start JIRA or Confluence using atlas-run-standalone:
and login with username "admin", password "admin".
- Navigate to Administration > Plugins > Available, find Speakeasy, and click "Install".
The default Speakeasy configuration restricts who can develop and enable Extensions. You'll need to change these to suit your instance.
- Navigate to Administration Dropdown (top right) > Extensions and click "Edit". If you do not see Extensions, refresh the page.
- Because you're developing on an instance with no sensitive data, untick the box titled 'Restrict to non-Administrators' and click "Save."
Extension Security For Production Servers
Speakeasy Extensions are still experimental, but if you wish to enable Speakeasy on a JIRA or Confluence server that contains non-public information, here are some notes on security implications:
A more sensible configuration might be to allow developers to to develop Extensions and internal users to view and enable them. If your instance allows public signup, it's a bit soon to turn on Speakeasy.
It's time to start building a Speakeasy extension!
