Accxia’s new App Webbooster for Jira speeds up page loading times by about 2 times.


If your Jira Instance is running behind a reverse proxy, Atlassian recommends to disable Jiras integrated “gzip compression”.

Since Jira loads large javascript and css files (e.g. batch.js, batch.css), this may result in slow loading pages, when your connection bandwidth is limited, especially for initial page loading.

For details see




With WebBooster for Jira, you will be able to add GZIP compression only to those java script files mentioned above. Without any impact on your local proxy configuration.

This will result in less data to be transmitted when the page is loaded.

As a result, based on your connectivity, you can expect a significant performance increase upto 2 times.

If you have gzip compression enabled in Jira or Proxy Server you do not need this App!

But for sure this App checks whether you Jira instance has got zip enabled. In this cas, the App outputs a warning message in the Jira logs and does nothing.


Just install the App “WebBooster” from Atlassian Marketplace.

Apply a valid License and thats it. If no valid license is found this app will disable itself (for performance reasons).

There is no configuration required.


If you enabled the App by accident, you might need to be able to disable this App manually.

Even if we are not expecting that this will happen, we provided a solution.

For emergency cases, there is a url the admin can call at any time to disable the App.

e.g. http://localhost:89/plugins/servlet/emergencystop

This will ask your for your admin login credentials and wil stop the Bosster App immediately.
