H2 database upgraded from 1.4.200 to 2.1.214
In Jira 9.5, we’re upgrading the H2 database from version 1.4.200 to version 2.1.214. The upgrade has fixed a bunch of vulnerability issues and boosted data security.
H2 isn't a production database. You should use it only for instance evaluation in a test environment.
The H2 database can’t automatically migrate your data from version 1.4.200 to 2.1.214 during the Jira upgrade. That’s why a Jira admin should migrate the backed-up data manually to the upgraded Jira instance.
For the smooth upgrade, take the following steps:
- Export the data from your current instance before the upgrade
- Upgrade your Jira to version 9.5
- Restore the exported data on the upgraded instance
1. Exporting the data
Export and back up the data from your current Jira instance before the upgrade
2. Upgrading Jira
To upgrade Jira to version 9.5, select an upgrade method and follow the instruction.
3. Restoring the data
To restore the backed-up data, import it to the upgraded Jira instance.
