Jira

Here you will find all the posts related to my work done on Atlassian tools. As of 2017 I have been working primarily as Atlassian consultant where I help companies in rolling out Atlassian tools like Jira, Jira Service Desk and Jira Software. I am loving this work as I get to work with many companies and travel a lot. Currently I live in London but I am from Delhi originally. I self taught myself to work on Jira and I gained expertise on it after doing several implementations. I also wrote couple of books, the latest one is Mastering JIRA 7 which is quite popular. Enjoy the posts, have fun :)

Jira upgrade path

Submitted by ravisagar on Tue, 02/02/2021 - 16:54

If you want to upgrade your Jira instance from very old version to the latest one then you will have to perform several jumps. I am trying to list the versions that you need to upgrade to.

5.2.7 or 6.0.3 > 6.4.14 > 7.0.11 > 7.13.13 > 8.15.0 > Cloud

For each version you will have to ensure the platform is support as well - mainly Java and Database. You can find this information for 8.15 here.

Hopefully this will help you.

Why you should post on Atlassian Community? #1000posts

Submitted by ravisagar on Mon, 12/28/2020 - 13:39

Today I answered a question on the @atlassian #community and the moment I pressed the submit button I noticed something. There is a count on the right hand that shows the number of posts, which changed from 999 to 1000. There was no loud bang or colourful animation but it felt so good.

Tips on Jira/Confluence Backup and restore strategy

Submitted by ravisagar on Mon, 09/21/2020 - 18:02

There was a question on the community about backup and restore strategy.

We currently have daily xml backups , however we would like to have a robust database backup and restoration strategy in place for our JIRA and Confluence applications. We are using postgresql 9.5.15. Can someone list down the steps to backup and restore DB. Appreciate if you can provide your inputs on the same. 

Ravi Sagar Newsletter

Honestly I hardly send out mails but I guess there is no harm in at least having a newsletter. I will only send newsletter when I have something important to share or an update. People are busy and no one has time to read emails these days. If you really like my content then I guess you will remember my site and come back for more.
