Jira upgrade

About Jira version updates – our guide

Atlassian releases a new version of Jira every few weeks. 

Minor versions contain small functionality improvements and bugs fixes, while the latest Jira versions offer users new and exciting functionality, novel features and an updated interface.

We strongly advise to complete a periodical Jira upgrade as the result will be an improved Jira version that we would always recommend, yet the upgrading process is not as simple as you might think.

Jira cloud, Jira Server, Jira Data Center – should they all be upgraded?

Jira cloud is a piece of Atlassian cloud instance. No need to do anything yourself.

Jira server. Should be upgraded by an application owner.

Jira data center. Should be upgrade by an instance owner.

Jira upgrade path

Important: We strongly believe that any Jira Server and Data Center upgrade activity should be completed by an experienced software engineer and ideally, by an Atlassian expert

  • Check whether you should upgrade (if your Jira add-ons are supported in a newer version, it will eliminate possible bugs and vulnerabilities).
  • Save your settings, configuration and customizations (database, connectors, SSO, proxy settings etc).
  • Jira home directory backup.
  • Database backup.
  • Latest Jira version installation setup. Apply your settings, configurations and customizations.
  • First launch of the new version. Add-ons upgrade.
  • New Jira version full health check.

Simply drop us a line if you would like your Jira to be upgraded by Polontech’s Atlassian Experts.
