After upgrading from JIRA 6.1.7 to 7.0.10. The support tools plugin reports:
"The table collation: 'utf8_general_ci' is unsupported by JIRA. The Database collation: 'utf8_bin' is supported by JIRA."
I am using a MySQL database. If I run the scripts to view the collation of my database tables I can see that some are using a collation of "utf8_general_ci" and some are using "utf8_bin". (It looks like the tables from JIRA 6.1.7 are using utf8_general_ci and new tables created by the upgrade to JIRA 7 are in utf8_bin.)
If I change the collation do I need to re-index JIRA afterwards?
Note I plan to shutdown JIRA and backup the database before changing the collation but I'm just wondering if a re-index is required as well.
