we have currently 5.2 JIRA version.soon we are upgrading to 6.3.4
Can I getcompatible add-ons for JIRA 6.3.4 version on "manage addons section" in currentlly installed jira.So that can update directly from there.
Only if the plugin states that it can. It is not as common that it is possible. If you force the plugins, you can harm your system because there could be different api interfaces at major releases that will not work with the downgraded versions of Jira.
What the normal procedure is place JIRA in maintenance mode. Disable the plugins that cannot be upgraded. Upgrade JIRA and then upgrade the disabled plugins. Then enable the plugins and verify your upgrade JIRA system.
upgrading JIRA from 5.2 to 6.3 you should refer to this link. https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/JIRA+6.3+Upgrade+Notes .
1) at the same time you should check required plugins on marketplace.atlassian.com for 6.3 JIRA version.
2) if installed custom plugins should upgrade API to 6.3.
3) whenever using database 5.2 for 6.3 Plugins table will update required plugins if found else few plugins will be uncompatible.
