JIRA is a web-application, so you can connect to it from as many places as you like, as long as it is exposed to the internet.

I'm not sure what you mean by "automatic update" though.  If you're meaning the server version upgrading itself, then no, it doesn't do that.

sorry, my question wasn't right. There are two foreign companies. Both have Jira. One is release 3.13 and the other one is 7.1. We need the same Information on both Jira. Is it possible to syncronize both Jira. One of the JIRA belongs to our Provider. But we need the same demands also on our Jira. Thank You!

In theory, yes, but you're going to have a very hard time of doing it.  You'll need a lot of differing code on both ends.


If it were two recent JIRA systems, it would be easier because you could write similar code for them.  But JIRA 3's remote calls are SOAP and JIRA 6.3 and above use REST only. 

I also wouldn't recommend trying to do it yourself.  I'd go get K15t's Backbone or iDalko's Exalate.  I've not worked with Exalate recently, but with Backbone, you can set up an entire project synchronisation in a few clicks.

But, with 3 and 7, no, I don't know of any add-on that could do it.  I'd strongly recommend the people on 3.13 get on with an upgrade though - 3.13 is not just well out of support, it's got security holes in it and shouldn't be exposed to the internet.

Indeed, 3.13 is a challenge.  It might depend on the use case and what information needs to be exchanged.  Exalate can support it, but it would require the development of a new connector.
