JIRA does not support IE 8

Hi, JIRA supports IE 9,10,11.

Is it possible by any way that JIRA will support IE 8 also? It is requirement for my project at organization level.

thanks, Nidhi

No.  Atlassian dropped support for IE8 a while ago, when it became clear that it was not going to be supported by Microsoft.

Your organisation MUST move to a later version of IE soon, as MS will no longer support IE8, let alone Atlassian.  I'd aim for IE11, or better yet, a proper browser, as that will give you a bit more future-proofing.

Hi there,


You can find more details on which browsers and platforms are supported by each version of JIRA in the page below:


As Nic suggested, the best option is to upgrade to the latest version of IE, since the IE8 support will be ended soon.
