Bamboo 2.4 Upgrade Guide
Bamboo 2.4.x does not run on JBoss 4.2.3 or later
We are aware of a JBoss issue that currently prevents Bamboo 2.4.x from running on JBoss 4.2.3 or later. If you are using JBoss 4.2.3 or later, we recommend that you do not upgrade your Bamboo installation until a fix has been implemented. Please see BAM-4705 for more information.
Upgrading from Bamboo 2.3 to 2.4
We strongly recommended that you back up your xml-data directory before proceeding. For full instructions please follow the Bamboo upgrade guide.
We also strongly recommend that you export your Bamboo data for backup before proceeding. Please note, that this may take a long time to complete depending on the number of builds and tests in your system. For full instructions please see Exporting data for backup.
If you are using plugins, please make sure that your plugins are compiled against 2.4 before upgrading.
Please also note the following important points:
Developing for Bamboo 2.4
If you are a Bamboo plugin developer, please refer to our Changes for Bamboo 2.4 guide, which outlines changes in Bamboo 2.4 that may affect Bamboo plugins compiled for Bamboo version 2.3.x or earlier.
Upgrading from Bamboo prior to 2.3
In addition to the above, please read the Upgrade Guide for every version you are skipping during the upgrade.
In particular, if you are upgrading from a version of Bamboo prior to 2.0, please ensure that you upgrade to Bamboo 2.0.6 first before upgrading to Bamboo 2.4.
Please ensure that you read the Bamboo 2.0 Upgrade Guide which contains important upgrade instructions for upgrading from earlier versions of Bamboo.
