Where can I download the JIRA 7 archive

There seems to have been an oversight in the JIRA 7 download selector - there are binary installers but as far as I can see no archive.

We require the tar.gz version to upgrade our existing installation.

https://www.atlassian.com/software/jira/downloads/binary/atlassian-jira-software-7.0.0-jira-7.0.0.tar.gz can be used for this. Is there any reason you're using tarballs over the binaries? The standalone installer makes it a lot easier to upgrade the instance rather than using the archive file.

Also we have a bug raised for this under https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-45660, when it's fixed the downloads will be available again.

We have standardised locations for where we install applications on our servers, so we just like the extra control that the archives give us. It only took about five commands to do the upgrade, so it's not too hard.

Ah, got it. Sounds like you're power users so archive makes more sense for you. Thanks for clarifying! :)

Some of us are trying to perform automated installs, in addition to installing in custom locations. The TAR archive makes this easy. We do not want to be dependent on creating answer files for every version or hacking install scripts to get the install automated. Atlassian has discontinued support for the WAR file, and it would be a shame to lose support for this option as well. Actually, if Atlassian distributed packages like RPMs, that would be even better. In fact, we're putting the TAR file into an RPM... PLEASE make this installer readily available!! Thanks!

+1 on all of these points =] same exact situation here

+10 for this request.  Is there any update?  This thread is 3 years old.  HOw the EFF can we devops if we have to run answer wizards all the time??

We avoid installers when possible because there is no documentation about what they do under the covers

Is there an archive for JIRA 7 with software and servicedesk already in it?  We have both on our instance and would be nice to have both in one.

same here. We don't need the installer. we have set up our own custom environment. we only need the raw webapp inside the tar.gz and running the installer for every update just doesn't make any sense.

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
