Convert encoding from Cp1252 to UTF-8 for Add-On

We have installed eazyBI Reports as an add-on to JIRA.  Atlassian documentation recommends we convert from current encoding Cp1252 to UTF-8.  We would like to know what impact, if any, there might be to doing so?  Will this create an issue with our JIRA software (6.4)? 

Thank you,

Pam LaMarca

No there is no risk, you can try first on a test instance to be sure. Add the following JVM parameter "-Dfile.encoding=utf-8" to the setenv.sh file , then restart JIRA. (+ you could always roll back to the previous JVM configurations)
