Generally, the best option is what you've done, replacing old incompatible add-ons with their updated versions.

Could you give us more detail on "custom fields not loading correct data"?  What are the fields and their types?

eric- sorry, i dont have an answer but was tryung to see if you could help me. we upgraded from 6.4 to 7.3 in test environment. what would be some of things that i should validate or test as a user and also as an Admin.

Hi Nic,

Thank for your reply. The plugin i use in Jira version6 really old and in version 7 the provider have no updated version.

My custom field type is "Calculated Number Field" this have Formula like this 

<!--
@@Formula: (issue.get("customfield_10500") != null ? issue.get("customfield_10500") : "") + (issue.get("customfield_10618") != null ? " (" + issue.get("customfield_10618") + " " : "") + (issue.get("customfield_10625") != null ? issue.get("customfield_10625") + ")" : "") -->

I also checked in the database the same with the old version(v6)

Not sure why it could not get correct data in the new jira(v7)

Acctually when i do upgrade Jira from v6 to v7 some plugins are incompatible so i follow this instruction https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirakb/upgrading-to-jira-7-throws-a-nosuchmethoderror-on-com-atlassian-crowd-embedded-api-user-781396615.html

Then all bugs plugin were fixed. However when i've done re-indexing the custom fields could not get correct data(maybe be cause some plugin incompatible still using some custom fields). You guys have any idea to fix this?
