we have developed a jira-core-server plugin , with atlassian sdk 8.2.6 amps 8.1.0
how can I know which versions of jira my plugin's JAR will be compatible with?
Hi @IMENE FIRAS
this mainly depends on the API classes you've used and if they differ between the various Jira versions. I'd recommend you simply give it a try and test the newest Jira version and go back until the oldest Jira version you'd like to support.
For the oldest Jira version, I'd recommend that you only take a look at the still supported Jira versions, see the Atlassian End of Life Policy for more details. At the time of writing, the oldest still supported Jira version is 8.4.
Does that help?
Hi @IMENE FIRAS,
I'll try to answer your questions below.
does the version of atlassian sdk with which I developed my plugin affect his compatibility ?
No, not directly. If you create a new plugin via the sdk, it will add Jira dependencies to your pom file. The dependencies in your pom file are the important factor to look at. We are usually compiling our apps with the oldest Jira version we support.
And could you please explain for me what does theses jira versions mean ? If i dévelop a plugin with atlassian sdk 8.2.7 it will be compatible only with these versions ?
To be honest, I don't know what these versions are actually there for. What I do know is that your plugin can definitely also be compatible with other versions mentioned here. Otherwise there could be no apps for the current Jira versions. :)
