Jira Upgrade: from 8.5 to 8.13 (LTS release)

Dear All,

We plan to perform upgrade from 8.5.3 release to the latest LTS release which is 8.13. Are you aware of any obstacles or other issues that could be caused by such a direct upgrade ? Shall we perform some intermediate upgrades (ex. to 8.7 or any other version between 8.5 and 8.13 ) ?

Please advise/Thank you

You can upgrade directly from 8.5.x to 8.13.x.

On this page you can read about important changes in each intermediate version.

I also strongly recommend to review the supported platforms. The most important here is to check whether your database version is still compatible.

You should also check the upgrade notes of your apps (plugins). Sometimes they require a manual action. But that's pretty rate.

Thank you for your help, much appreciated. 

Best regards,

Hi @Rafal Sojka

confirming what Charlie already said especially with this particular upgrade 8.5 -> 8.13 never had any issues.

After upgrade one instance directly ran into but this is ironed out with upcoming 8.13.7 and has nothing to do with the upgrade >itself<.
The upgrade, like I mentioned in the beginning, worked like a charm.


Thank you Daniel for your feedback, I am still preparing to the 1st upgrade but having such good feedback from two community leaders :) is really encouraging.

Once again, big thanks!
