Installation and Upgrade

 

This page only applies to scenarios where you are connecting older versions of JIRA Software Server to Bitbucket Cloud.

In most cases, you should not need to install the DVCS Connector plugin in JIRA Software; it is shipped with the application. If for some reason, you do need to install or upgrade the connection, you must have System Administrator permissions on the JIRA Software instance. 

Prerequisites for Installation or Upgrade

Before you install or upgrade the DVCS Connector plugin, ensure that you are using a plugin version that is compatible with your JIRA Software version. If you are installing through the Universal Plugin Manager (UPM), it ensures you only install a compatible plugin. If you want to download the plugin from the Atlassian Plugin Exchange, click the Compatibility with JIRA link on the connector's page.
