Why is my Operation Advisor not showing up when I try to enable it?

Susan Hanson (1.6k2201194) | asked Jan 20 '14, 8:41 a.m.
More Operation Advisor issues (sorry).

I have the first Operation Advisor created and enabled (following this article:

Then I wanted to do another one, so I followed the same instructions but changed a bit (name, package, logic in the advisor).  I created the Feature, created the Site, directory, etc.

Then I restarted my server, but the operation advisor is not listed in the list of Preconditions when I go into my project area.  However, I have no idea where to start debugging.  I have gone back and double-checked spelling in my directory for my site, in my .ini file for my provisioning_profiles ... everything.

did u restart the server cold? it only loads plugins on cold starts

then shutdown and restart server

also look in server/logs/ccm.log for possible reasons the plugin did not load

The Jazz Server has been flagged to reset and reload from the configured update-site when it is next restarted

this is what I meant by define it as a requirement

on your plugin.xml, the second entry, rich click, add extensionservice
right click on extensionservice, add prerequisite

here is a plugin from Ralphwhich shows it
            name="Create Approvel Participant"
                    <requiredService interface=""/>   
                    <requiredService interface=""/>
                    <requiredService interface=""/>         
                    <requiredService interface=""/>
                    <requiredService interface=""/>

I've been looking for Ralph's Create Approval Participant, can you toss me the link, please??

And your reset command and your other answers all have my Advisor now loading and working.  I now have to get all the right logic.

Thanks!  I actually went ahead and rebooted and that also cleared it up.  I'll remember to requestRestart next time.

well, spoke too soon .. it shows up now but gets an error stating that my OperationAdvisor failed to find the require dservice 'interface'. Check <prerequisites> in plugin.xml.

Well, my plugin.xml doesn't HAVE any <prerequisites> tag (maybe that is the problem), but I do have  listed as a required plugin. 

Is there a place to register this hard dependency/prereq on the class itself?
