Updating Greenhopper from 6.1.5 to 6.2.1...do i need to take a backup of my project and scrum board?


I have JIRA 5.2.7 and planning to upgrade to 6.0...for that I first need to upgrade GreenHopper from 6.1.5 to 6.2.x as the earlier versions are not supported byJIRA 6.0. Since team is using Scrum Project and Board actively I had concerns regarding GreenHopper Plugin update...Also I couldn't find any documentation regarding this....if there is any pls suggest...

Thanks & Regards,
