Please also ensure you have read the JIRA Requirements page, since not all the platforms listed below may be required for your specific JIRA setup. Please read End of Support Announcements for JIRA for important information regarding the end of support for various platforms and browsers when used with JIRA. Supported platforms for JIRA 6.3 EAP
Supported platform(s) Supported version(s) Notes Java platforms Oracle JDK / JRE (formerly Sun JDK / JRE) Operating systems Microsoft Windows JIRA is a pure Java-based application and should run on any supported operating system, provided that the JDK / JRE requirements are satisfied. Please see here for information on Anti-Virus in JIRA Linux / Solaris JIRA is a pure Java-based application and should run on any supported operating system, provided that the JDK / JRE requirements are satisfied. Atlassian only officially supports JIRA running on x86 hardware and 64-bit derivatives of x86 hardware. If you are installing JIRA from an archive, you should create a dedicated user account on the operating system to run JIRA, since JIRA runs as the user it is invoked under and therefore can potentially be abused. Although the JIRA Linux Installer is designed to install successfully on all 'flavours' of Linux, we only test the JIRA Linux Installer on CentOS Linux. If you encounter problems with the JIRA Linux Installer on your particular flavour of Linux, we recommend installing JIRA on Linux from an archive file. NFS mounts are not supported due to Lucene requirements. Please see the IndexWriter docs for further info. Virtualisation VMware Please read our guide for information on the required configuration of VMWare. Virtualizing JIRA (JIRA on VMware) We are unable to provide any support for VMWare itself. All of the operating systems listed in the 'Operating systems' rows above are supported for VMware. Application Servers Apache Tomcat Deploying multiple Atlassian applications in a single Tomcat container is not supported. Please see for reasons why we do not support this configuration. Deploying Multiple Atlassian Applications in a Single Tomcat Container Whilst JIRA may work with other versions of Apache Tomcat 6 & 7, it has not been tested on them and may cause problems. We recommend using these versions. Databases Oracle Using Advanced Compression Option (ACO) is not supported. MySQL We support all 5 series GA releases, except for 5.0. This includes 5.1.x, 5.5.x and 5.6.x. The MySQL driver is no longer bundled with JIRA, as of JIRA 5.2. Please see the JIRA 5.2 Upgrade Notes for reasons why we do not bundle this driver. MySQL 5.0.x is not supported as it is essentially EOL and only covered under Oracle Sustaining Support. We recommend running MySQL in strict mode. JIRA does not support 4 byte characters, regardless of MySQL version. If you must use 4 byte characters, we recommend you use PostgreSQL. PostgreSQL Microsoft SQL Server Express Editions are not supported. HSQLDB Supported for evaluation use only JIRA ships with a built-in database (HyperSQL DataBase or HSQLDB). While this database is suitable for evaluation purposes, it is susceptible to data loss during system crashes. Hence, for production environments we strongly recommend that you configure JIRA to use an external database.
