JIRA upgrade from 5.1.2 to 5.2.8 - what can be wrong?

Hi All,

we are going to upgrade our Jira from 5.1.2 to 5.2.8 this weekend. I'd like to collect all the issues which could get wrong after upgrade. So I could make a checklist for typical buggy things.

Do you have such experiences of upgrading between 5.1 and 5.2?

Thanks in advance,

It would be good, if you can first do the migration on Test Instance & then list the buggy thinks based on our testing.

Also refer the release notes, migration details on the Atlassian Site for your JIRA version for more details

As addition to what Chaithra mentioned, you may want to backup your JIRA home directory and installation directory. In case anything wrong happened, you still have the backup. It's important to do it on a test instance before upgrading on the production instance.

I hope that helps :)
