Jira 4.3.4 to 6.0?

We're in the process of upgrading Jira from 4.3.4 to 5.2 and I was wondering how soon Jira 6 will be released, and whether we will be able to upgrade directly from 4.3.4 to 6.0 or if we'll have to do it incrementally, 4.3.4 to 5.2.10 to 6.0? Thanks

On my staging tests, I was able to upgrade directly to version 6 beta by doing and in place upgrade, and by importing my data into an fresh version 6 install. Thanks for the help

You should probably contact support to ask.

My gut feel is you can probably go straight from 4.3.4 to 6.0 although when 6.0 does come out generally they will mention in the upgrade guide if you need to go via another previous release. Generally I've seen this only when they introduced new user management frameworks though

Agree with @Colin - altho as with any upgrade - assumption is you are doing the staging upgrade first, and validate. So just set yourself up to be able to maneuver.

You might get lucky, and Atlassian's JIRA upgrades have improved measurably in the releases since your FROM version. But anyways, doesn't hurt to try - and maybe save some time.

Worst case, you go back to your staged versions plan.

Best case, you can say #winning !
