Supported platforms

Before installing Jira, make sure you have the right software and infrastructure to run it. If a platform and version is not listed on this page, it means we don't test it, fix bugs or provide assistance for it. All platforms are shared between Jira Server and Jira Data Center, unless they're clearly marked as Data Center only.

This page is for Jira 9.15 . If you're looking for a different version, select it at the top-right.


(tick) Supported – you can use  Jira 9.15  with this platform.

(info) Limited – you can evaluate  Jira 9.15  on this platform, but you can't run a production site on it. 

(warning) Deprecated – you can use  Jira 9.15 with this platform, but we're planning to end support in an upcoming release.

JavaGood to know

Oracle JRE/JDK:

(warning) Java 8

(tick) Java 11

(tick) Java 17

Eclipse Temurin:

(warning) Java 8

(tick) Java 11

(tick) Java 17


Eclipse Temurin/Eclipse Adoptium

  • Our Support and Engineering teams use Eclipse Adoptium to replicate any issues raised with Eclipse Temurin. If you’re using a different distribution of Eclipse Temurin (e.g. Zulu), we’ll still provide support for our products. However, if the bug is caused by a problem in Java distribution, we’ll ask you to reach out to the Java distributor for help.
  • You don't need to install Java if using the Windows Installer or Linux Installer as Eclipse Adoptium JRE is bundled with Jira.

To see the compatibility between your Jira version and the version of Eclipse Adoptium (AdoptOpenJDK), check Bundled Tomcat and Java versions. In the tables, see Tested JREs.

Operating systems

Operating systemsGood to know

(tick) Microsoft Windows

(tick) Linux 

(info) macOS

(tick) Amazon Web Services ()

(tick) Microsoft Azure

Jira is a pure Java-based application and should run on any supported operating system, provided that the JDK / JRE requirements are satisfied.

Read Anti-Virus in Jira applications. 


We perform tests on Ubuntu.


  • If you’re creating your own deployment in Azure, you can use any configuration (e.g. OS or database) that’s supported both by Jira and /Azure.

The Azure Resource Manager template as a method of deployment is no longer supported or maintained by Atlassian. You can still customize it for your own usage to deploy Data Center products on Azure though.

We recommend deploying your Data Center products on a Kubernetes cluster using our Helm charts for a more efficient and robust infrastructure and operational setup. Learn more about deploying on Kubernetes

Environment and Infrastructure


You can use official images to deploy Jira in a Docker container or customize a Docker deployment on your own.

We support the Atlassian Docker templates and can help with Jira related problems. We don't provide support for Docker itself or problems with any Docker environment.

Containerization manager

We recommend that you use official helm charts to deploy Jira Data Center with Kubernetes or customize a Kubernetes deployment on your own with the reference to the official helm charts.

We support the Atlassian Kubernetes helm chart and can help with Jira Data Center product-related problems. We don't provide support for Kubernetes itself or problems with any Kubernetes environment.

Read our Kubernetes support disclaimer and more about what we support and what we don’t.


  • NFS mounts are supported only for Jira Data Center shared home directory. Due to Lucene’s requirements, NFS mounts won't work for Server or Data Center local home directory. Read the IndexWriter docs for more information. 
    •  The following NFS versions are supported: 4.0 and 4.1. We use them during Jira tests.
  • We only support Jira running on x86 hardware and 64-bit derivatives of x86 hardware.
  • If you are installing Jira from an archive, create a dedicated user account on the operating system to run Jira, since Jira runs as the user it is invoked under, it can potentially be abused.


  • VMware supports all of the operating systems listed under 'Operating systems'.
  • We don't provide support for VMWare itself.
  • Read Virtualizing Jira for information on how to configure VMWare.
