JIRA 6.1.9 : upgrade to 6.2, 6.3 or 6.4


I have JIRA 6.1.9 and wonder which upgrade path to choose :

1) upgrade to next major release 6.2.7

2) upgrade directly to 6.3.15

2) upgrade directly to 6.4.14

If you have any experience please share it with me. What kind problems I can encounter during different upgrade paths ?

Thank you for help,

6.1 to 6.4 should work fine.  But test it, and if you have any issues, plan for 6.1 -> 6.2 -> 6.4 instead.  I've only ever had problems with infrastructure changes and add-ons when going from 6.1 to 6.4.

Thank you. Is there any you skipped 6.3 ?

The testing on 6.1 -> 6.4 worked.  No need to hit 6.3 if you don't need it.
