Jira Upgrade from 7.2.4 to 8.0

We have recently been on 7.2.4 due to our SQL server being 2003.

We have now moved to SQL 2106 and I need to know if I can upgrade straight from 7.2.4 to V8.0 without stepping through various 7.XX upgrades. Checking 7.6 it only supports SQL 2012 and 2014, so I am a little confused on which versions to use in my upgrade path.

 

Any help gratefully received.

Hi @Bruce Caldwell , 

 

you can upgrade directly from 7.2.4 to Jira 8.5 for example, no need for intermediate upgrades. 

In your case, SQL Server 2003 is not supported so you will need to do the following :

 

Let me know if this helps,

Thanks Alexis, really useful.

Have a question though in that I have already moved the DB to SQL 2016 running on 7.2.4, so can I just run the upgrade to V8.5?

Yes . SQL 2016 is supported by JIRA .

So it doesn't matter if you run 7.2.4 or 8.5 on it - it anyway supports both.

It is same as doing the JIRA upgrade first and then upgrading DB - so no issues.

Hi @Bruce Caldwell , 

 

if you've already migrated the DB to SQL Server 2016, then you can just run the 8.5 upgrade then : no need to backup and re-import the data !

Brilliant, thanks for you help.
