Health Check: Supported database
About the Health Check
The supported database health check verifies that your JIRA instance is using a supported database. Using a supported database ensures JIRA's data integrity and avoids unexpected behaviour when using JIRA applications.
We are currently checking for supported database versions on the following JIRA instances:
|JIRA version||Databases supported by health check|
|7.4.3 or newer|
MySQL, PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle DB
To make sure all the databases are supported by the health check, update your Atlassian Troubleshooting and Support Tools plugin to the latest available version. You can check which version you're running in JIRA administration > Manage apps or JIRA administration > Manage add-ons (for JIRA versions lower than 8.0).
If you want the health check to support Oracle DB, your ATST version needs to be 1.17.0 or later.
|7.4||MySQL, PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL Server|
|MySQL, PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL Server|
For further info on the actual versions please refer to the appropriate JIRA Server version supported platforms:
- Latest Jira Server Supported platforms
- Jira Server 7.13 Supported platforms
- JIRA Server 7.6 Supported platforms
- Supported platforms for JIRA Server 7.4 and earlier versions
We don't test JIRA with any unsupported databases, so there are no guarantees they will work. Using an unsupported database is considered high risk because if there are problems with the database or unexpected behaviour in the application we won't be able to help you fix it.
Understanding the Results
What this means
|Your database model and version are supported.|
JIRA is using a supported database.
<database model> <database version> is not supported. You should migrate to a supported database version.
The database is not supported, and data should be migrated to a supported database.
See Switching databases to find out how to migrate data from your current database to a supported one. We strongly recommend trying this on a staging / test server first, in case you encounter problems during the migration process.
