Installing a Workflow Post Function plug-in

I’m learning to develop JIRA plug-ins. I’m using the free JIRA Cloud trial. I’ve successfully created a Workflow Post Function plug-in, but I don’t know how to get it to actually show up on my JIRA instance.

Must I upload it as an add-on, from a URL? That’s how I did a “Connect add-on” earlier. That add-on was written in javascript and I had to set up an http server and ngrok for it, so I believe that is a different process than this post function requires.

I haven’t been able to find much on how to actually get it to appear in JIRA. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

You can only install “Connect” add-ons in Cloud. It sounds to me like you’ve written a Server add-on this time, which you won’t be able to load on to Cloud.

There’s a Developer’s Guide that explains what an Atlassian Connect add-on is, and how to build one.

And, on that note, have you read the reference for the JIRA Workflow Post Function module?
