Jira fails to start, different database version

Hey all,

I downloaded the jira SDK and I'm trying to develop a plugin for Jira 4.0.1

But when I want to start Jira using the following command: atlas-run --version 4.0.1 I get the following error:

Failed to start JIRA due to a build number inconsistency.

The data present in your database is newer than the version of JIRA you are trying to startup.

Database version is: 646

JIRA app version is: 471

Please use the correct version of JIRA. You are running: 4.0.1#471

I tried the following things:

- Did a cleanup using atlas-clean

- Used the command atlas-mvn eclipse:eclipse

But the problem remains. How do I start Jira version 4.0.1 ? I need this version !

I managed to get it working. I had a mistake in my pom, the data version needs to be 4.0:


then running atlas-clean and atlas-run --version 4.0.1 solved it
