I have a JIRA 3 and JIRA 7. We've been using JIRA 3 all this time. Now, we want to use the latest version of JIRA.
Update JIRA 3 to JIRA 7 is a fairly complex procedure. We need to export JIRA 3 projects to JIRA 7.
But, the zip that generates XML Backup in JIRA 3 is not valid when you import it into JIRA 7.
As far as I am aware you will have to do certain upgrade steps; You will first need to upgrade to JIRA 4.4.5
Above steps are for upgrading data.
This is indeed correct and also pointed out on the linked documentation;
follow the instructions in the general Upgrading JIRA guide, as well
If you're upgrading to JIRA 7.0, you should consult the Migration hub. JIRA 7.0 contains functionality that affects your user management, application access and log in permissions, and it's very important that you understand the requirements and the implications before you upgrade. The Migration hub has all this information in one handy space.
