This add-on has been installed. If you need help getting started, click the link to the add-on documentation from the Manage add-ons screen.
  1. Click on the close button to finish the process.

At this point, you should be able to see the OSLC Connect for Jira plugin listed on the User-installed add-ons section in the Manage add-ons page. Another way to validate you completed this process successfully is to refresh the current page (Manage add-ons page) and a new OSLC section should appear on the left panel below the ATLASSIAN MARKETPLACE section.
