How difficult is it to upgrade from JIRA 7.10.1 to Core? We are an on-premise customer

I am very new to JIRA administration and have inherited a version 7.10.1 system. It has reached EOL and needs to be updated as soon as possible. Does Jira Core require an secondary on-site server to update my primary JIRA app-server? Like how Windows environments can use WSUS to update the servers? Is there a step-by-step guide for updating our system? We are completely on-premise.

Hi @Jake Rich 

 

To answer your questions : 

 

Does Jira Core require a secondary on-site server to update my primary JIRA app-server? Like how Windows environments can use WSUS to update the servers?

 

No, this is not required.

 

Is there a step-by-step guide for updating our system? We are completely on-premise.

First go through these pages:

1.  https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver/upgrade-checklist-966063320.html

2. https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver/preparing-for-the-upgrade-966063325.html

Then upgrade using one of the 3 methods here ( i recommend Fallback method ):

Ok, thank you, I will take a look at those links. Did you have to update Java versions or is it simple and just run an EXE file from Atlassian?

Yeah I found those links during my research. I was hoping for personal experiences doing the upgrades. Thank you
