Can I upgrade directly to 8.4 from 7.13?

Hello, all

We are planning to upgrade our Jira Server from v7.13.6 to v8.4.x and I wondered if you are "allowed" to go straight from one platform/feature version to a later platform/feature version without incrementally upgrading to each feature release in-between.  I've been looking on the web for a half hour now and haven't seen ANYTHING to say you can't upgrade and skip versions in-between (i.e. 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, 8.3), but just wanted to be doubly sure before we undertake the effort.  One of our administrators had indicated they thought we might lose functionality introduced in feature releases if we skip those versions in our upgrade path.

Hi @Nathan Martin , 


you can actually upgrade directly from 7.x to 8.x, it's not obvious in the documentation but if it doesn't say anything about a specific upgrade path, then you're good to go.


Let me know if this helps, 



Hey, @Alexis_Robert -- yep, exactly what I needed to know.  Thanks much!  

@Nathan Martin -> if you upgrade, use this upgrade guide:

We're advising manual upgrade for 7.x to 8.x upgrade.
