From Evaluation Version to Licensed Version

MarcoC Jan 09, 2013

Hi everybody!

I have 2 questions about JIRA.

Now I'm using an Evaluation License for Jira and I'm developing it to try if it could be the good choice for the office where I work.

In this weeks, I have defined my workflow, I have create the users, I have created few issue, I have created few custom fields and more other things.

1. If I will buy JIRA License, what will be happen? I receive another license to put in my JIRA version that I have installed, or I have to download a new version of Jira with the License that I've paid? (I'm using Jira downloaded on my pc, not the on-demand version)

2. If I would to buy and to download the lastest version of JIRA, how can I put the issue, the workflow, the custom fileds and all the things that I've created, from the old to the new version?? (Is it OK if I connect my db in MySQL from the old version, to the new?? Or will I lost few data??)

1. Your new licence will replace the old one, and you'll see all the reminders disappear. No changes or downloads needed. Don't even need to restart.

2. This is a bit more complex. You should be able to simply point the new Jira at the old database, and local data directories, but you'll want to read to check that you don't need to do anything more than that.

For #2, along with what Nic said, you could also do an export (backup) of your JIRA and install the newer version, then import the backup. There are compatibility issues sometime, especially if you skip too many versions (not the minor 5.1.2 to 5.1.6) that would require you to do a step process that would upgrade the data itself. I just went through this by upgrading from 4.1.2 to 5.0.2 and I had to do the incremental process, but it can be done.
