Confluence version 7.2.0 which is bundled with Tomcat version 9.0.27 and bundled JRE ‘Adopt OpenJDK 8u202b08’. The current latest version of bundled Tomcat is 9.0.40 and that is used in Confluence versions 7.10.2 (AppLinks 7.2.1) – 7.12.0 (AppLinks 7.2.3). However, our instance of Jira is running Jira Software version 8.0.3 which uses AppLinks version 6.0.3. Would we have to upgrade Jira to version 8.12 (AppLinks 8.0.0) to have a compatible AppLink and then also upgrade our other apps; Insight app from 7.0.2 to version 8.7.9 and Scriptrunner from 18.104.22.168-jira8 to version 6.23.0?
No, you do not need to worry about these potential compatibilities. Your versions of the various elements are close enough together that changing any one of them will not break the others and force an upgrade. The worst case is that you upgrade one element, and you find a shiny new feature in it cannot be used until one of the others goes up.
So, to simplify it down, as you don't have to think about compatibility of the elements:
Upgrade from Jira 8.0 to 8.12. As part of that, you might make SR incompatible, but just click "upgrade" on that from "manage apps" after you log in to the upgraded system. Same with Insight.
