Upgrading from Jira 6.x: What you need to know

Join this webinar to learn why thousands of teams have moved to Jira Software 7.0, the #1 software development tool for agile teams. Product Managers and Support Engineers from Atlassian will cover technical details on the upgrade process, as well as answer your questions during an open Q&A session.

A little over a year ago, we introduced the next evolution of Jira, splitting it into three purpose-built products: 

  • Jira Software - Designed specifically for software teams, delivering best-in-class agile tooling with built-in best practices, deep developer tool integrations, and a focused project experience for your entire team.
  • Jira Service Desk - A purpose built solution for IT teams with the right tools to help them be productive and responsive to the business.
  • Jira Core - A dedicated product experience for business teams that extends Jira’s fundamental workflow capabilities with specific templates for business teams.

In March 2017, the last standalone version of Jira will reach its end of Support date. Customers still on Jira 6.4 (or earlier) will need to upgrade to one of these products to continue taking advantage of Support and the newest features. We're holding this webinar as a refresher on the communications we provided when these products launched, as well as to provide new guidance on upgrading to the latest versions of these products. 

In this webinar, representatives from Product Management and our Support teams will cover the product and licensing changes you need to know about when you upgrade. They'll also discuss technical details on the upgrade process, including the answers to frequently asked questions from customers who've already upgraded.

We'll end the session with an overview of the latest features available in Jira Software and Jira Service Desk, as well as a Q&A session where you can ask any questions you have about the changes or upgrade process.
