Hi @Yew Teng Ui

which type of database are you using? Which version are you currently on for the database?

So, you mean that the workflow is perfectly find (no troubling conditions/validators) but you are assuming it must be backend (database) related?


Hi @Daniel Ebers ,

The database I'm using is MySQL version 5.7.19.

Before upgrade to JIRA 8.13.2, the workflow is working fine.

In the process of upgrade, I have updated the Database collation from utf8 to utf8mb4 based on this link. I'm not sure is it related to the issue I'm facing.

At least I can confirm the Jira version is compatible with the database version you are using :)

Is there probably anything more detailed visible from atlassian-jira.log of your instance?
Apart from that (this is just a guess, though without any evidence) it indeed looks like an error that is being given back from database itself ("Lock wait timeout exceeded").
Did you make sure for the database the settings are like they are described in documentation:

Sometime the hinge is only on a small detail.
