Upgrade Jira to 8.15

I am on Jira Server 8.5.  My system, tells me 8.15 is available. When I follow the link it first tells me I need an Installer then takes me to a page to download the full install of Jira 8.14.1.  When I search for Jira 8.15 Release Notes I get a dead page in the online help.

Where is the upgrade package for Jira Server 8.15?


There isn't a supported release yet.

There is an early access release, but you really really only want that for testing and development.

Weird that Jira tells me it's available then.

To upgrade from 8.5 to 8.14.1 - do I have to reinstall Jira from the Zip file?

Not re-install.  The recommended method is to run the installer, and point it at your existing 8.5 instance.  It will then upgrade it.

Make sure you test it on a copy of your Jira system first, and always take a backup, of course.

Hi Dan, 

Before doing that upgrade as well consider 8.15 is not an LTS release. 8.5 is. The current LTS release is 8.13. One advantage of the LTS releases are the patches for 2 years for security. So while you don't get the latest and greatest features you have a consistently stable platform. I would recommend looking at 8.13 as you are currently already using the LTS model.
