JIRA 7.2.0 - Using SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS error health check

Hi, i have JIRA running MS SQL Server with collation 'SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS' with versions 5.2.9, 6.1, 6.2, 6.3, 6.4 it worked fine
i just upgrade to 7.2.0 version and now i found the message:
the database collation 'SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS' and table collation ''SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS' are not supported by JIRA.

also, if i search documentation abount installation of JIRA with sqlserver2012 i found that the recomendation is CASE INSENSITIVE
so what do i have to do in this case?

Change your database collation to Latin1_General_CI_AI and the health check will no longer show error.

(Always make changes on test database in a test jira environment before doing in prod)

The change was made in test environment,

What happens if i dont change the collation? 

and if i install confluence this collation:  Latin1_General_CI_AI

is going to work for both?

we want JIRA database and confluence database in the same instance of sqlserver

I strongly suggest to always stay with in the supported platforms.




Does JIRA support has a procedure for a change of collation in database?

for migrate information between databases with this problem?

is there any recommendation or documentation that we can follow?

i changed the collation, and i receive the error

"Argument data type ntext is invalid for argument 1 of lower function".  in log file, with table: "AO_54307E_VIEWPORTFORM" 

when i try add sla based of requesttype specifycally in JQL filter

what should i have to do?
