Impact of removing application link between Stash and JIRA

I've seen references to deleting the application link and going in to the database and deleting the link manually if the Stash server is no longer present, but nothing about the actual "impact" of removing the links.

What I'd like to know is: Does the breaking of the link affect the data that has been previously stored within each application (Stash/JIRA)?  Does JIRA cache any of the data from Stash or vise-versa that would no longer appear when the link is removed?  What would happen if I restored the link?  Does everything come back?

JIRA does cache the information of which JIRA issue links to which Stash commit. However, this could be regenerated if you brought the link back.

"could be" or "will be" regenerated if link is brought back?

I believe that you would have to manually tell JIRA to rebuild this info (button in the UI).

Sorry... I would have followed up yesterday, but your system limits "newbies" to 3 comments/questions per day until they've reached 25 points... Boris, thanks for your quick responses yesterday! Now for today, I have a followup question... Is the "JIRA issue links to which Stash commit" the only cached information?

What other information are you looking to preserve?

Boris, My questions are related to what will happen when/if we create then break an application-link. Presently, we are using a 50 user JIRA and 10 user Stash license. We are looking to upgrade the Stash to 25 users, which MAY necessitate moving the Stash application off of it's current server onto a new server. If we have to move and "break" the application-link, what are we going to lose? Once we get to the new server, can we get this information back? We just want to know the impact and whether we are going to have any data loss that can't be recovered. This is my 3rd comment today, so I'll be off the grid until tomorrow. Thanks for your responses. Kevin
