General Concept

In general, JFS plugin works as a filter applied to pages generated by JIRA. This allows to keep an amount of changes to original JIRA source code as small as possible, thus improving overall stability and maintainability. On the other hand, such an approach requires that every page is processed properly. This can only be guaranteed for plugins that have been explicitly tested for compatibility with JFS.

JFS by default blocks an access for all users to the pages (identified by their URLs), which it does not know how to process. This can result in incorrect behavior of some plugins.
