This documentation relates to the 5.0 release of Comala Workflows

 Documentation for other versions of Comala Workflows is available too.

There are two different ways to localize Comala Workflows:

  • Create a properties file that overrides the one bundled with the plugin
  • Change the localized properties bundled with the plugin file

First extract the properties file to localise:
1. Download the latest version of the plugin.
2. Copy the file into a temporary location TEMPLOCATION.
3. Create a temporary directory (TEMPDIR, change to that directory and extract the content of the plugin:

jar xvf  TEMPLOCATION/adhocworkflows3.2.4.jar

4. The file contains all the texts that can be localized.

Option A: override the bundled properties file

5. Copy the localized file as into CONFLUENCEBASEDIR/WEB-INF/classes


You have to copy the file to all the nodes in the cluster

Option B: re-bundle the localized properties file into the plugin jar

This can help you manage redistribution of the localized plugin to another nodes

5. Create your own locale of the file, following the appropriate naming convention (i.e. for German). Copy the file to TEMPDIR
6. Re-package the plugin. It is a good idea to use a different name for the jar file (i.e. adhocworkflows3.0.6-de.jar for a German l10n)

jar cf TEMPLOCALTION/adhocworkflows3.2.4.jar META-INF approvalsworkflow* atlassian-plugin.xml com images templates
