Upgrade JAM plugin to v8.0

Since with version 8.0, Jam plugin is now plugin v2, what are the steps for migrating plugin v1 settings to plugin v2.

The current installed version for us is 7.0.1 running on JIRA v5.1.2

The documentation of plugin doesn't really cover this case


Anyone have any experience to share ?

Thank you.

Adil, Can you reach out to support at go2group dot com?

Hi, Adil:

Here is the instruction at the JAM download page:

"To upgrade from an earlier version of the plugin, please disable the existing plugin from the Plugin Manager, shutdown JIRA and remove the 2 JAR files (Mercury_kitxx.jar and jericho-html-3.*.jar) from the <tt>WEB-INF/lib</tt> folder. You will then install the JAM 8.x plugin from the Plugin Manager. After the upgrade, all the JAM data from previous version will be kept in your JIRA. There is no need to do "Initialize JAM" again."

I will put this into the upgrade document.

Thank you @Jobin. I have reached out to that email for support.
