Upgrade notes

Stricter verification of external database configurations

Bamboo 5.13 introduces stricter verification of the external database configurations which prevents both upgrade and application start:

Microsoft SQL ServerThe check ensures that the tables in the Bamboo database have correct collation and correct commit isolation, see Microsoft SQL Server.
Other databasesThe check ensures that the database engine is correctly configured to be case-insensitive.

Make sure your specific database is configured correctly according to Connecting Bamboo to an external database.

For MySQL specifically, this might affect all databases in the instance, see MySQL.

If the check fails

If the check fails and you can't correct your database configuration immediately, you can roll back to the previously installed version of Bamboo without changing anything in your database or home directory configuration.
