Hi,

 

we are follow below steps to upgrade JIRA from 5.2.11 to 7.1.9

 

Migrate Data from 5.2 to 6.3 and then 6.3 to 7.1

1)      In JIRA 5 - administration - export => file "migration.zip"

2)      If doing the MTP:

Stop JIRA 5 (don't stop for test and dry runs)

3)      Copy JIRA 5/export/migration.zip to JIRA 6/import/

4)    Cleanup this archive to remove unavailable entries (KT*)

1 egrep -v "(QANDAA|QANDAQ|QANDAE|a_text|q_text|TimesheetEntity|TimesheetScheme|Myaa|ReportEntity|ReportScheme|LinkEntity|LinkScheme|WorklogExt|WorklogType|KPlugins|KPluginsCfg|cfgDefaultValue|cfgLDefaultValue|cfgValue|cfgLValue|jjlf_config|jjlf_project|jjlf_category|KListenerSils|JiraCapacityPlan|additionalTaskDescription|testexecutionhistory|KRSSecurity|KBlitzActions)" entities.xml > entities-purged.xml

1)      Zip the modified entities.xml file back into a backup file;

Note: If you're running an Unix-based operating system, you can run the below command on a terminal window.

1: mv entities-purged.xml entities.xml ; zip -r MyBackupFile.zip entities.xml activeobjects.xml

Restart the XML restores process;

6)      in JIRA 6 - administration - export => file "migration.zip"

7)   stop JIRA 6

8)   copy JIRA 6/export/migration.zip to JIRA 7/import/

9)   in JIRA 7 - administration - restore, override licenses with dev licenses

10)   copy content of JIRA 5/data to JIRA 7/data (mainly attachments, small dir with avatars)

11)   Set attachment directory : WebGUI => Admin => system => Advanced => attachments => Edit settings => Select Default Directory option


Hi,

What was the JIRA Agile add-ons version you used with 6.3?

Thanks,

Hemant

The best thing to do is a couple of in-place upgrades (upgrade via export/import is generally not recommended as it's often painful)
