Is importing a BAMBOO backup sufficient when UPGRADING (version) an evaluation instance


In general, when upgrading from one bamboo revision to another is it sufficient to do the following Proposed Upgrade Steps?

Note: Assume the use of an internal H2 db and install layouts as follows:








Proposed Upgrade Steps:

  1. Full bamboo 6.7.1 backup/export (artifacts etc. etc.)
  2. Shutdown of 6.7.1 instance and removal of it's (windows) service
  3. Installation of 6.7.2 instance
  4. Use of the Custom Configuration during 6.7.2 to import the 6.7.1 backup
  5. Re-installation & configuration of a new 6.7.2 (windows) service


The existing upgrade documentation seems to prefer to re-use a single (consistent) bamboo-home directory as opposed to cleanly demarcating and switching them (by directory version naming). While there is probably a scale or size point at which the time to import could get prohibitively long, for smaller scale sites I would think that this shouldn't be an issue.

Therefore ....

If I use the Proposed Upgrade Steps, is there anything that I am missing (forgetting) by not re-using the original D:\BAMBOO\bamboo-6.7.1\bamboo-home?


Thank you,

Copy over any extra settings from the following files too:

  • D:\BAMBOO\bamboo-6.7.1\bamboo\conf\server.xml
  • D:\BAMBOO\bamboo-6.7.1\bamboo\conf\web.xml
  • D:\BAMBOO\bamboo-6.7.1\bamboo\atlassian-bamboo\WEB-INF\classes\seraph-config.xml


Thank you very much for your advise.

Do you happen to know if there is any documentation that outlines these as the supplementary files required in this type of upgrade scenario?
