We're currently setting at Jira version 5.4, can we just do one upgrade to 8.02

We're currently setting at Jira version 5.4, can we just do one upgrade to 8.02 or do we have to do it incrementally?

I can not find anything specifically but I would suspect that you will have to do an incremental since you had to going up to 7.

I believe that this would be the upgrade path:
5.2.5 > 7.0.11 > 7.13.x > 8.0.2 (You might be able to skip 7.13.x)

Here's the upgrade documentation: 
https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver/upgrading-jira-applications-using-the-installer-938846937.html

You should also check the supported platforms and ensure that you are good to go there: https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver/supported-platforms-938846830.html?_ga=2.122344075.1417763911.1554129722-1785046573.1549295491

You can also submit a support ticket to confirm your upgrade path. https://support.atlassian.com/contact/

Hi,

I'd be more careful with this. I agree with all with @Brant Schroeder , but I could go in this upgrade path (from my experience - my most interesting upgrade was from 3.x to 6.14).

current -> 6.0 -> 6.4 -> 7.0 -> 7.1 -> 7.13 -> 8.1

I know it's a lot of steps, but it's way how I should do it.
