Upgrade Jira 8.5.1 to Jira 8.22.6

Hi all,

I have a Jira Software version 8.5.1. I would like to upgrade it to version 8.22.6.

My licence is valid until feb 2024. 

I visited Jira Software website ( that indicates it is not possible anymore to upgrade tier. 

I suspect tier is the number of users associated to my licence. 

Do you think it is still possible to upgrade the Jira software version (8.5.1 -> 8.22.6) without changing the tier program?

Thank you

Hi @Gregory BONNARDEL ,

Welcome to the community !!

You can download the required version and upgrade the existing server with valid license. File to download is present in

Tier means user license. Atlassian has stopped user license upgrade as of now and not selling any new licenses to server versions.

Hi @Gregory BONNARDEL ,

Its long process and too many downtimes required. 
Why would you do so many upgrades when you can directly upgrade from 8.5.1 to 8.22.6. 
Always see the upgrade matrix
