Upgrading JIRA 6.3.6 and Confluence 5.6.1

We plan to upgrade our JIRA and Confluence installations. Confluence is using the user management from JIRA.

How should we upgrade the two systems?

- Do we have to do it in a specific order?

Agree with Shannon, just be really careful with the upgrade notes - read all of them.   There are some changes that you want to adjust for.

For example- the ssl and mysql changes in 7.3

Go team ;)

Hi Bernard,

You're safe to upgrade in any order you wish. I would recommend doing Confluence first in case the updated Jira version causes an issue with User Management, but I don't foresee an issue there.

And since both are relatively up-to-date you can go straight to upgrade to the latest version.

Have a look at this first before you migrate Jira:

Upgrading Jira Applications and note the Migration Hub referenced as some things have changed with User Management in Jira 7.

Upgrading Confluence can be referenced for your Confluence upgrade.

Kind Regards,
