Getting started with Plugins2
If you haven't developed for JIRA before, we recommend that you start with our Getting started guide instead, which will help you get started by building a Connect add-on for JIRA. However, if you need to build an add-on for JIRA server, then this page will help you learn about the Plugins 2 framework which is used to build add-ons for JIRA server.
Note, if you just want to integrate your existing application with JIRA remotely, head straight to the JIRA REST API docs.
