We're preparing to migrate JIRA Core to Data Center by end of year.
We've purchased the data center license, but experienced a problem when applying the licenses.
Has anyone experienced troubles when applying data center licenses to jira core?
Are you getting an error like in this attached page? If so this workaround may work for Core like it does for Service Desk
We didn't get that error message. Actually when we applied the plugins for data center THEN applied the license to core it brought the system down, no information as to why in the log files.
Once we restored the server and tried again by applying the licenses, it seemed to work. The following steps are our plans for applying production licenses:
We were pretty dismayed when we brought a system down simply by applying licenses. Thankfully this happened on one of our test environments. The above steps are what we are using to prepare for production this weekend. (we're taking precautions as this instance of JIRA is critical to the business)
I'm curious if this situation is more prevalent among the community?
Perhaps I'm missing where the information is for installing data center over jira core, but it would be nice to find such a resource. Also to share our experience so nobody has to recover a system unnecessarily as we've had to.
Thoughts on this are appreciated. Thank you in advance!
