how to correlation Jira OnDemand version to Jira server version

When migrating from OnDemand to server, all the documentation keeps stressing the importance of  having both JIRA instances running the same version. But OnDemand and Server use different version names. I can't seem to find a table or chart or page or something that provides correlation between OnDemand and corresponding Server version.

Does such a thing exist? If so, where can I find it?

Actually, it doesn't matter.  Cloud (not OnDemand, it was renamed years ago) is almost always ahead of Server versions.

So there's a really simple rule - use the absolute latest server version available.

If you do decide to do something like "export now, then import that file in 3 months time", yes, you might not need the latest version of Server, but you can correlate the server release date with your export date/time.

Thanks. FYI I see the terms "cloud" and "OnDemand" so often I don't think about it, just use whatever pops into my head smile

I know, but I get told off for not saying it wink
