Upgrading from JIRA 3.7.4 to 3.8

Please follow the JIRA general upgrade instructions. Additionally, please note the following:

  1. The 'Assign To' field name has been changed to 'Assignee' consistently across JIRA. This means that users need to be aware that the column heading in the Excel export has changed to 'Assignee' from 'Assign To'. Please be aware of this if for example you are exporting JIRA data to Excel and running macros on it. The field has been renamed for the following Issue Navigator Views:
    • Excel (all)
    • Word (all)
    • Full Content
  2. The issuecommentedited.vm e-mail template for the new Issue Comment Edited event has been added to the WEB-INF/classes/email-template-id-mappings.xml file. The id of the e-mail template used for sending Filter Subscriptions has changed to 10000. If you have manually modified the WEB-INF/classes/email-template-id-mappings.xml file in the version of JIRA you are upgrading from, please do not simply copy the old file to JIRA 3.8. You will need to port your changes to the WEB-INF/classes/email-template-id-mappings.xml file that is shipped with JIRA 3.8. If you have not changed the WEB-INF/classes/email-template-id-mappings.xml file, you do not need to worry about this.
  3. Two columns have been added to the jiraaction table to support editable comments.

Upgrading from JIRA 3.7.3 and earlier

In addition to the above, please read the Upgrade Guide for every version you are skipping during the upgrade. The complete list of Upgrade Guides is available here.
