About the local "installed-plugin" folder on each jira node Edited


When "upscaling" to a Data Center version of Jira, we have to create a shared home folder and copy a few folders in it (data, plugins, logos, import and export to be accurate).

However, there's no instructions about what to do with the original folders nor what will happen once you upgrade jira version later on, as we did from 7.13 to 8.5.

My problem right now is that I have old plugin files lurking in the original jira_home/plugins/installed-plugins folder and it seems they are not used/accessed anymore. However, I want to be sure about what I can do with those !

Let's take a quick look:
jiradi is the jira_home folder
jiradi_shared_home is the NFS share.

The plugins in jiradi (jira_home) plugins folder are obliviously all outdated.

The question is simple: Can we delete them ???

The original directories fall out of use in DC, so you don't need them.

Obviously, keep a backup for a while, but you won't cause any problems if you just move them out to somewhere else to keep for a few weeks.
