we are planning to upgrade JIRA from version 7.13 to version 8.13.2 . The Database used is MSSQL 2016R2 SP2. and the JDBC driver used is version 6. do i need to upgrade the driver while doing the upgrade to version 7 , or the database is supported for version 188.8.131.52
Hi @sujata Birajdar ,
You need to download Microsoft JDBC 7.21 driver.
After DB Upgrade you need to place the updated driver in the following path.
and place in the following location
<JIRA installation directory>/lib/
Note: Please check in Staging First DB Server first. keep the production as same.
we dont have staging environment as such and we are planning to upgrade our production instance directly. bt i didnt understand why there is a need to upgrade the database .
the database we have currently is 2016R2 SP2 MSSQL server , Could you please confirm if this is compatible with version 8.13 as in the supported platform only the 2016 SQL server is mentioned .
we though only updating the driver will work or do we need to upgrade the DB as well for the JIRA upgrade.
