When there are multiple Automation for Jira-related plugins installed, for instance, Automation for Jira and Automation for Jira Lite or Legacy Automation module, third-party Automation modules are unable to load, showing the following error when viewing an automation action:

Disabled third party extension for Automation for Jira?

This rule component was provided by a third-party extension for Automation for Jira. It appears this app is no longer installed or enabled. Please check the 'Manage apps' section in the global administration


  • Check Jira Admin → Manage Apps → Manage apps, and check that you fit the condition listed in the environment section above

  • Automation for Jira (or Automation for Jira Lite) is otherwise enabled

  • When you view an Automation Action containing a third-party component, you receive the error listed above

  • In the Jira log file, atlassian-jira.log, you find errors logged as automation rules are triggered:

Could not find automation action module MODULE_NAME_HERE, perhaps the plugin has been uninstalled?


There are multiple automation plugins installed, which prevents Automation for Jira from detecting the third-party automation module


Visit Jira Admin → Manage Apps → Manage Apps and uninstall the conflicting Automation Apps leaving on the intended Automation App installed. For example:

  1. If you have Automation for Jira installed, but find Automation for Jira Lite also installed, uninstall Automation for Jira Lite

  2. If you have Automation for Jira Lite installed, but also find Automation Module or Automation SPI installed, uninstall Automation Module and Automation SPI
