Jira Atlas plugin compatibility

Sudhir March 3, 2023

Hello Experts


We have a Jira Server (8.20.x) and we are trying to build a atlas based plugin.

If we develop with the following dependencies, can it also support the newer versions of Jira (eg: 9.x)?

jira.version- 8.22.6


If not, do we need to release a plugin for each version of Jira?
Is there a compatibly table available which talks about this?
Similarly is there a compatibility table which show which version of amps can be used with which version of Jira?

It comes down to whether the API you're using has been changed in higher versions. Typically, changes (major ones) are done in Jira7/8/9 etc., minor ones typically don't pack any substantial differences to worry about (unless it really, really can't wait). So you don't have to release a new version for every Jira, but you need to stay on top of release notes to see if there have been any changes that apply to your plugin's functionality.

Most of plugins I had for Jira 8 were straight up compatible with Jira 9, but again it comes down to what your plugin does and whether there have been specific changes to the version you're updating to.

Thanks for the reply, i was hoping that would be the case.

Coming to the amps vs jira version in your pom, do you have any idea where i can find the compatibility table.
