Upgrading JIRA 3.x Data to JIRA 6.x
Please note: you must perform this upgrade in two steps. You cannot upgrade directly from JIRA 3.x to JIRA 6.x - you will need to upgrade to JIRA 4.4.5 first.
To upgrade from JIRA 3.x data (or earlier) to JIRA 6.x, you must upgrade to JIRA 4.4.5 release first.
- Step 1 - Get ready: if you plan to skip a few JIRA versions for your next JIRA upgrade, we strongly recommend that you read the upgrade guides for all major versions between your current version and the version to which you are upgrading:
- Step 2 - Upgrade to JIRA 4.4.5: follow the procedure in Migrating JIRA to Another Server.
- For users who are connecting to Crowd or LDAP, please read the Changes to User Management in JIRA.
- Step 3 - Upgrade to the latest version of JIRA: follow the instructions in the general Upgrading JIRA guide, as well as the JIRA 6.x-specific instructions in the Production Releases.
