Need path and advice for upgrade for Jira 7.1.2 to 8.X

Any advice on an upgrade path for Jira 7.1.2 to 8.X?

Can I go straight to 8.8 or should I upgrade to other versions along the way?

Looking for advice, I’m not the end user, dropped on IT for the upgrade.

Thank you.

Hi @idealit – this seems to be more of an admin question. I recommend checking out this thread on the user community forums (as this is the developer community forums, for folks who are building apps/add-ons on top of Atlassian products):

As the user DPK_J recommends (in that link above), before you start upgrading Jira Server, check your app/plug-in compatibility with your target Jira version. There’s also plenty of other tips and links to good resources in that discussion thread.
