Jira Software 7.10.x upgrade notes
Here are some important notes on upgrading to Jira Software 7.10. For details of the new features and improvements in this release, see the Jira Software 7.10.x release notes.
Upgrade to the DVCS plugin
If your Jira Software Server or Data Center instance is connected to Bitbucket Cloud, it’s through the Jira DVCS connector plugin.
Due to GDPR regulations and the personal data protection they require, we've needed to make some changes to the API's that Bitbucket Cloud has available. These changes happen in two phases. Phase one will be live on Bitbucket Cloud by the 10th of May, 2019, and Phase two will go live on the 1st of September, 2019.
What you need to do as a result is to upgrade your Jira Software instance or upgrade your Jira DVCS connector plugin to the relevant version. For more information, see Jira KB.
See Preparing for Jira 7.10 for any important changes regarding plugins.
Note: Upgrade to a test environment first. Test your upgrades in your test environment before rolling them into production.
