The procedure for upgrading JIRA changes little from one JIRA version to the next, although process has been getting easier for recent major releases of JIRA. Despite this, each major JIRA release comes with specific recommendations for upgrading from the previous major version.

If you plan to skip a few JIRA versions for your next JIRA upgrade, then we strongly recommend reading the upgrade notes for all major versions between your current version and the version to which you are upgrading. These version-specific upgrade notes contain important information that may be relevant to your current JIRA installation and the JIRA version you are upgrading to.

(tick) For example: If you plan to upgrade from JIRA 4.1 to JIRA 4.4, then read the upgrade notes/guides for JIRA 4.2 and JIRA 4.3, as well as those for JIRA 4.4.

We also recommend that you read the upgrade notes for any minor releases listed below, since these notes contain important information that may be relevant to your JIRA upgrade.

(info) From JIRA 4.4, the names of these documents were changed to 'upgrade notes' (from 'upgrade guides') to avoid potential naming ambiguity with the general Upgrading JIRA guide and for consistency with other Atlassian products.

Below is a list of upgrade notes/guides for all previous major and minor releases of JIRA, each of which has important information you should be aware of for your JIRA upgrade:
(tick) Upgrade notes/guides for minor releases are indented.

You will find the upgrade notes attached to the release notes for the relevant version.
