Sharing Same Database Instance across JIRA and Fisheye

Hi All,

we are using JIRA 6.4.11 and we are planning to upgrade to Fish eye 3.10.3 , i have a doubt if we can share the same instance of Database Instance between these applications. This Database instance collation is set to "SQL_Latin1_General_CP437_CI_AI" and Atlassian has recommended to use collation Latin1_General_CS_AS for fish eye  ,  while creating Database for Fishsye i can set same collation as recomneded by Atlassian but Default Collation while installing the database is set to "SQL_Latin1_General_CP437_CI_AI" , so my question is is fisheye will be affected by this kind of behaviour??

Yes, you need to have the correct database collation settings.

I thought all the database servers supported having different collation settings on different databases though.  So you can have "mydatabaseserver" running and hosting jiradb with one setting and fecrudb with another.


Hi Nic,

Thanks for your response,

I we can do that , but i have seen so many articles on internet that mixing collation is not recommended , we may face some complications in the applications.


what do Atlassian tool set expert suggest , wanted to know.

I'd avoid it too.  Especially with MS-SQL as it's so flaky.  If possible, run two entirely separate databases so you can follow the recommended collation settings for both applications independently.

yeah , we also think same . Thanks for your input smile
