GreenHopper 6.1.4 Upgrade Notes
Upgrading from GreenHopper 6.0.x, 5.10.x, 5.9.x, or 5.8.x to GreenHopper 6.1.4
Please follow the upgrade instructions in the JIRA Agile Installation and Upgrade Guide, plus note the following:
Compatible with JIRA 5.0.x and 5.1.x
GreenHopper 6.1.4 is only compatible with .x and higher. Please note that GreenHopper Simplified Workflow is only available for JIRA versions 5.0.4 and onwards, due to a bug in one of the libraries that JIRA uses.
Upgrade may be slow for large installations
If you have a large installation (e.g. more than a thousand users), the upgrade may take longer than usual. Please accept our apologies, and note that this will be fixed in the next release of GreenHopper.
Re-index recommended if using Epics
A JIRA re-index is recommended before you start using epics.
Re-index required if upgrading from 5.9.7 or older
A JIRA re-index is required for anyone upgrading from a GreenHopper version older than 5.9.7.
If upgrading from 5.8.3, manual upgrade is required
If you are upgrading from GreenHopper 5.8.3, please:
- Download GreenHopper manually from the Atlassian Marketplace.
- Install it using the instructions for 'Installing your own plugin' — see Managing JIRA's Plugins.
