We are planning to start out with a Jira 6.1 instance using a local MySQL DB for a team of 100 Developers, with plans to switch to an Oracle DB (running on a separate DB server) in a few months. Anyone have any concerns or know of challenges with this plan we should consider?
Thanks in Advance!
It's hard to say that you will not face any challenges during the database migration.
But the process itself usually is pretty simple, JIRA has a XML Backup engine, which exports all your data, and also imports it, doing all the necessary adjusts to place your data in whichever database it's connected.
So basically, what you will need to do is:
2. Setup your Oracle clean database (follow this document: Connecting JIRA to Oracle.)
3. Connect JIRA to this new Database.
I hope it helps!
Just to share as well, there is a documentation on how to switch the database which Pedro has listed the steps. :)
