In both versions plugin version are different.

Please suggest us to steps to be taken care.

Thanks In Adavance.

Hello Kite,

Considering an instance without any third party plugins and everything according to the supported platforms for that version, you should face no errors in your approach. Since I'm not aware of your environment, I couldn't tell for sure if you are going to have errors or not. I guess the best thing to do would be to try it out in your dev instance first. Just make sure to have everything backed up!

Furthermore, if you would like to take a look, here is our documentation for upgrading JIRA:

Bear in mind that this is an *upgrade* not a "restore a backup". You should treat it as an upgrade, and follow the upgrading instructions in the documentation.

Hi Kite,

The only errors that I can think of is if there are incompatible plugins in the JIRA 6.2 instance or any incompatibility with JIRA's Supported Platforms. If that's all correctly configured you should be able to import JIRA 5.2 data directly with no problems. smile

If you face any problems with that, please let us know!
