we are upgrading our Jira next week from version 4.3.4 to 5.1. My experience is that there are some malfunctions, error after an upgrade: there are settings, plugins, etc always went wrong and we realized many weeks after the upgrade.
Have you got a checklist about Jira settings, parameters, plugins which have to be checked right after the upgarde? Maybe from your experience: a list of things which use to get wrong. You know I don't want that our users pick these errors.
Thanks in advance!
Do a "Upgrade Check" for plugins using the plugin manager before even deciding to upgrade. This will tell you whether you will have a plugin which does not exist for the latest version of JIRA, but is an absolute requirement for you to upgrade.
I just read about another post asking the same question, and I would like to repeat what Jobin said there. You need to perform the upgrade on a test system to really say that it will be fine.
