About the Health Check

This check ensures your JIRA Version is currently Supported. The End Of Life Health Check compares your current System Date with the recored End of Life (EOL) date of the product version currently running and reports an error if the version is EOL. The check will pass until 6 months before the product is about to become EOL when it will report a warning. Once the EOL date has been reached the check will fail.

Atlassian supports major versions for two years after the first major iteration of that version was released (for example, we support JIRA 6.4.5 for 2 years after JIRA 6.4.0 was released). Our Atlassian Support End of Life Policy has further details on product lifecycle.

We recommend that Administrators upgrade Atlassian products to take advantage of the latest product improvements and capabilities. Atlassian does not provide support for instances on versions that are End of Life with the exception of problems and queries related to upgrading your End of Life product to a new version.

You will require an active license to upgrade to a new version of JIRA.

We recommend that you plan to upgrade your JIRA environment before reaching End of Life. Our Documentation in: Upgrading JIRA has full details on the approaches that can be used to upgrade your product.
