Older JIRA documentation

We supply documentation for previous versions of the documentation, including JIRA, JIRA Service Desk, and JIRA Agile. The documentation is available online and in downloadable format (PDF, XML for some versions, HTML for some versions). 

The XML export (which is not produced anymore) can be used to import the documentation on to your own local Confluence server. For instructions, see below:

  Using the XML exports of the JIRA documentation...

Creating your Own Local Version of our Documentation

We provide XML zip files of the documentation space, for you to download and use to create your own local version of our documentation on your Confluence site. Each XML zip file contains a Confluence-specific XML format plus attachments (screenshots etc), which you can upload to your Confluence site. Please take a look at the instructions for uploading an XML file.

Note: When you create your new space from our XML source code, the space will inherit the Confluence 'Documentation' theme and the customisations we have made to the header, footer and left-hand navigation bar. You will need to adjust or remove these customisations. Please refer to the Confluence documentation or JIRA documentation for details.

Online help links and local documentation

To make JIRA's help links point to your own local copy of the documentation, please see the page about local JIRA documentation.
