Bamboo 5.13 upgrade notes
We’ve collected some important notes on upgrading to Bamboo 5.13. For details on all the new features and improvements we’ve introduced in this release, see the Bamboo 5.13 upgrade notes.
Stricter verification of external database configurations
Bamboo 5.13 introduces stricter verification of the external database configurations which prevents both upgrade and application start:
|Microsoft SQL Server||The check ensures that the tables in the Bamboo database have correct collation and correct commit isolation, see Microsoft SQL Server.|
|Other databases||The check ensures that the database engine is correctly configured to be case-insensitive.|
Make sure your specific database is configured correctly according to Connecting Bamboo to an external database.
For MySQL specifically, this might affect all databases in the instance, see MySQL.
If the check fails
If the check fails and you can't correct your database configuration immediately, you can roll back to the previously installed version of Bamboo without changing anything in your database or home directory configuration.
See what changes are in store for the supported platforms in Bamboo. For more information about what the latest stable release of Bamboo supports, see Supported platforms.
This release of Bamboo doesn't remove or deprecate support to any of the existing supported platforms.
This release of Bamboo introduces support for MySQL 5.7 and Microsoft Edge.
