JIRA is now available as three separate applications, JIRA Software, JIRA Service Desk, and JIRA Core. For more information on administering these applications, refer to the Administering JIRA Applications documentation.

Installing JIRA

If you're upgrading to JIRA 7.0, you should consult the Migration hub. JIRA 7.0 contains functionality that affects your user management, application access and log in permissions, and it's very important that you understand the requirements and the implications before you upgrade. The Migration hub has all this information in one handy space.

Use this Installation Guide if you are installing JIRA for the first time. If you are upgrading JIRA, please refer to the Upgrade Guide.

Installing JIRA

To install JIRA, follow the instructions for your operating system:

Each of the instructions above install the 'recommended' distributions of JIRA. Another JIRA distribution known as 'JIRA WAR' is also available for more advanced setups that require the building and deployment of JIRA to a separate application server installation. To install the JIRA WAR distribution, see Installing JIRA WAR.

Note, Mac OS X is not a supported operating system. You should only install JIRA on Mac OS X for evaluation purposes. For instructions, see Installing JIRA on Mac OS X.
