Changes in database support for Server and Data Center products

Hello, Community!

My name is Gosia and I'm a Product Manager on Server and Data Center products here at Atlassian. I am reaching out to you to share information about database types and versions we support across Atlassian Server and Data Center products and some changes you will see in this area in the future.

Our supported platform portfolio is pretty extensive. Across all Server and Data Center products, we support PostgreSQL, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, and MySQL. Additionally, Bitbucket Server supports MariaDB and Jira, Confluence and Bitbucket Data Center can be deployed on AWS with Aurora as a dedicated database.

We hear from you on jira.atlassian.com, through our Support and Premier Support teams, Technical Account Managers as well as Atlassian community, about how important it is that we add support for new versions of these databases. To respond to this need, within the last few months the Server and Data Center teams focused on adding support for PostgreSQL 10 and PostgreSQL 11, as well as Oracle 19c.

For some products, this support has already been announced, for others, it will be added in one of the upcoming releases.

We have also prioritized adding support for MySQL 8 in Jira and Confluence Server and Data Center and you can expect it coming within the next 6 to 9 months.

Simultaneously, I wanted to take this opportunity to communicate our decision to deprecate and no longer provide support for old versions of databases. In the near future we plan to deprecate the following database versions:

  • PostgreSQL 9.3, 9.4, 9.5

  • Oracle 12c R1 and Oracle 11g (for Fisheye and Crucible)

  • MySQL 5.5 and 5.6

  • Microsoft SQL Server 2012 and 2014

 

We recommend planning a move to a more modern database now, so that you are able to take advantage of more modern versions in the future. However, if you need more time to transition off your database, we recommend getting on an Enterprise release.

For Jira and Confluence, the above-mentioned versions of databases are supported in: Jira 7.13 and 8.5 and Confluence 6.13. If you are using PostgreSQL 9.5 or Microsoft SQL Server 2014, the last version supporting these versions will be Confluence 7.4 (coming in Q2 FY20).

Please note that for 2 of the databases, the Jira 8.5 support windows will expire a few months after the end of the database support window. Jira 8.5 expires Oct 2021 and PostgreSQL 9.5 expires Feb 2021 and Oracle 12c R1 (extended) expires July 2021.

With all these efforts we remain focused on making sure our customers can use modern technology to run our products. The most recent information about supported versions of databases, as well as announced deprecations, can always be found in product-specific documentation:

I hope this information will help you better plan your infrastructure investments and ensure you can use modern and reliable technology. Please share any questions, requests, and concerns you might have in the context of supported databases and versions. Your feedback is invaluable!

Thank you,

Gosia

So that means if we are running Oracle 12c for our self hosted solution we will not be able to upgrade to Jira 8.8 when it is released?
