Upgrade JIRA from Standard to Enterprise

Upgrading JIRA is simple and fast, just like installing it to begin with. We have upgraded a Standard Trial Version to a licensed Enterprise and it did not cause any problems.

  1. Download the JIRA version you want to upgrade to
  2. Make an XML-Export of you running system (Administration -> Import&Export -> Backup Data to XML)
  3. Backup the databases and attachments
  4. Drop all tables in your old database
  5. Upload the new downloaded JIRA and install it
  6. Point it to the old database
  7. Import all data from the XML-Export file

…and done. It’s that easy, and it’s done within half an hour.
