I need to upgrade from JIRA 4.1 to JIRA 6.3.
There appear to be several methods to achieve this.
My question is.. (please excuse me if it sounds simplistic!!)
Is it possible to import a JIRA 4.1 XML file directly into JIRA 6.3 to restore the database?
Many thanks in advance..
It is better to do this in steps. Upgrade JIRA to 4.3.x first and then upgrade it to 6.3.x. You can find the appropriate upgrade guides in the JIRA documentation.
Make sure you read all the release notes to understand the changes between versions. There are quite a lot between 4.1 and 6.3!
OK, I accept that, but whilst I am upgrading my DEV system, users will be using the LIVE system.
Is there a documented method of determining the Delta's between the two systems and then importing them to the updated system.
currently, my DEV clone is 1 Month Old.
Also, I will hope to keep an up-to-date DEV clone for testing and implementation, up to now, this has all be done directly on the LIVE system.
I had similar task to upgrade JIRA 4.0.2 to 6.3.14 (my JIRA is connected to a postgresql database)
Steps I use to upgrade are:
What is important is that all three JIRA installations are separate - both INSTALL and DATA directories are different between JIRA versions
Only one version is running each time!
