Below are some important notes on upgrading to Crucible 2.4. For details of the new features and improvements in this release, please read the Crucible 2.4 Release Notes.
On this page:
- Crucible 2.4:
- If you are using a Mercurial or Git repository with Crucible, it will be automatically re-indexed when you upgrade to Crucible 2.4. This is because we have upgraded the database schema for these SCMs.
- If you are using a lightSCM plugin to connect to a repository (i.e. you are not using FishEye), we recommend that you disable the lightSCM plugin in favour of the new native repository access functionality that is bundled with this Crucible release. Atlassian's lightSCM plugins (not lightSCM itself) are being deprecated in this release. Please see What happens if I decide to stop using FishEye with Crucible? for more information.
- Crucible 2.4.1:
- If you use FishEye/Crucible with Perforce and previously upgraded to FishEye/Crucible 2.4.0, you must reindex all of your Perforce repositories after upgrading to FishEye/Crucible 2.4.1. Note, FishEye/Crucible will not automatically reindex your Perforce repositories, you will need to start the reindex manually.
- Crucible 2.4.2:
- If you are using a ClearCase repository with Crucible, it will be automatically re-indexed when you upgrade to Crucible 2.4. This is because we have upgraded the database schema for this SCM.
