How to upgrade from free version used in Server to paid version in Data Center edition


We currently use the free version of 'Automation Lite for Jira' on our Jira Server instance.

We are migrating to Data Center edition and the app now shows up as 'Not datacenter approved'.

We would like to upgrade to the paid version but how do we do that?

Can we just uninstall 'automation lite' and install 'Automation for Jira' and will all existing rules be kept?

Hello @Wim Abts ,

The rules you created with the Automation Lite app will be accessible with the standard Automation app in Data Center. You can uninstall the Automation Lite app, install the Automation app (and apply your license for it), and you should be good to go with your existing rules. This will also unlock some additional components which aren't available in the Lite variant of the app.
