Upgrade notes

Script directory for Groovy scripts

Due to the changes to Groovy scripting in Assets, during the upgrade, Jira Service Management will create a new directory (<JIRA_SHARED_HOME>/plugins/assets/groovy_scripts) in the shared home. If you notice any errors related to directory creation in the logs, create the above script directory and make sure that this directory can be read by the user running Jira. The upgrade tasks also adds any file paths used previously in Assets post functions (which are used by Jira workflows) to the allowlist.
