Upgrade notes

Here’s some important information you should know about before upgrading.

Microsoft JDBC driver

With Bamboo 6.0, SQL Server jTDS driver is replaced with the official Microsoft JDBC driver.

If database settings are configured directly in Bamboo, then during the upgrade to 6.0, it will attempt to update driver settings. In case of customized settings, the Bamboo instance administrator will be required to manually convert the settings.

If database settings are configured in the container (Tomcat) and Bamboo uses a data source, an automatic upgrade will not be possible and instance administration will be required to manually convert the settings.

To learn more about this change, see Transitioning from jTDS to Microsoft's JDBC driver.

New library for setting up a JNDI resource for SMTP

Bamboo 6.0 is shipped with the javax.mail-api-1.5.6.jar library. This library needs to be copied over to your <Bamboo-install>/lib folder when setting up a JNDI resource for SMTP. For more information, see Configuring Bamboo to send SMTP email.

Changes to supported platforms

See what changes are in store for the supported platforms in Bamboo. For more information about what the latest stable release of Bamboo supports, see Supported platforms.
