If I upgrade to JDK 1.8 for my Bamboo server, do I need to upgrade the JDK for all of my remote agents as well?

I want to take advantage of the JDK 1.8 support with the latest version of Bamboo (5.8.1), but does this mean I should also upgrade the JDK for all of my remote agents?

Hello Jordan,

Thank you for your question.

In order to avoid problems, it is recommended to run Bamboo server and remote agents using the same JDK major version.

If you find this answer useful, I would kindly ask you to accept it so the same will be visible to others who might be facing the same issue you have inquired.

Thank you for your understanding.

Kind regards,

Would I need to wait until my instance of Bamboo had been upgraded though? So that the remote agents also get automatically upgraded? I would assume that since the support for Java 8 was just released, I wouldn't want to change the Java version on the remote agents until they had been upgraded? (I hope that makes sense, lol)

You don't need to update your remote agents. Currently, Atlassian's cloud platform also runs on a mix of Java 6 and 8.

But please schedule an upgrade - new releases of all Atlassian's product will become J8-only this year.
