Update database table with sql script (yes or no)

Is it recommended to update the database directly through an update sql script like recommended in this article, How to rename a group in Jira | Jira | Atlassian Documentation?

if so, is it "better" to stop jira server before making changes to the db or is it sufficient to clear the jira cache e.g. with this Scriptrunner Builtin-Skript?

Hi @Alexander ,

welcome to the Atlassian community!

My suggestion is :

  • stop jira
  • perform a db dump
  • run queries
  • clean cache
  • start jira


how do you clean the cache, with Scriptrunner Builtin-Script or is there another way? 

Delete JIRA_HOME/plugins/. bundled-plugins and JIRA_HOME/plugins/. osgi-plugins (just these two)
