JIRA 6.1.6 Upgrade Notes

Important information for developers

  • 'creator' column added to jiraissues table — A new creator field was introduced in JIRA 6.1.6, and will also be in JIRA 6.2 when it is released. This field was implemented as a column in the jiraissues table in the JIRA database. Please note the following:

    • New JIRA 6.1.6 (or 6.2) instances: the creator field will be located after the assignee column
    • Existing JIRA instances that are upgraded to 6.1.6 (or 6.2): the creator field will be inserted as the last column in jiraissues table

    We strongly recommend that you do not rely on the order of columns in the tables of the JIRA database, but instead refer to the columns explicitly by name.

Upgrading from JIRA 6.1 to 6.1.6
