Any harm in upgrading Confluence but not JIRA?

Our JIRA is 6.1 and our Confluence is 5.2.5. Logins for AD are handled by JIRA for both and they are integrated.

We would like to upgrade our Confluence to 5.7, and JIRA afterward at a later time in a separate project.

Is this supported? Are there any gotchas? We know we will need to upgrade underlying systems on the Confluence host like Java, Tomcat, and MySQL as well as a prerequisite for the actual Confluence upgrade.

Hello Joe,

Actually this would not be a problem at all! You can upgrade just one of the applications without affecting the other one. smile

However, remember that we recommend testing the upgrade process on a staging environment first, so you can check any problem that might happen, and understand how to fix and/or avoid them when upgrading the Production instance.

Please, if you have any questions on how to achieve that, let me know!


Best regards,

Eduardo Mallmann

Thanks Eduardo! We definitely got the staging environment built out for just this purpose. :)
