We recommend you read the Proactive Actions before Install page before upgrading.

Please note if you are upgrading Jira you need to verify that your version of Tempo Timesheet is compatible with your Jira version. There are two different scenarios where Jira and Tempo are incompatible:

  1. Jira version is lower than Tempo compatible version

  2. Jira version is higher than Tempo compatible version

If your Jira version is lower than your Tempo compatible version, please take the following steps:

  1. Uninstall Timesheets and Tempo System plugins if installed.

  2. Restart your Jira server.

  3. Install a lower and compatible Timesheets version to your Jira server.

If your Jira version is higher than your Tempo compatible version, you don’t need to uninstall Tempo. You simply need to upgrade Tempo to a higher and compatible version.

  2. Click the gear icon at top-right and select Add-ons.

Or, if you prefer, you can downgrade your version of Tempo Timesheets for Server to an earlier version.

To downgrade Tempo Timesheets...

Every version of Timesheets might include upgrade tasks to migrate data from old to new database tables or improved features. An example of this is the worklog attribute migration in Timesheets 8.0.0 and the migration in Timesheets 7.10 when Tempo Accounts is replacing the Tempo Account Manager.

When downgrading, you therefore run the risk of losing data and also potentially making future upgrades more complex, as upgrade tasks run only once.

It is very important to ensure that your version of Tempo Timesheets for Server and Jira for Server are compatible. Before upgrading or downgrading either Tempo Timesheets for Server or Jira, please consult the Compatibility Chart.

Tempo for Server Product Compatibility chart...


Tempo is compliant with Atlassian’s End of life policy (EOL). Please refer to the following page to learn more about the Atlassian Support End of Life Policy.

Atlassian supports feature versions for two years after its release. Tempo products for Jira are also supported for two years (e.g. we support Tempo Timesheets 8.0.x for 2 years after Tempo Timesheets 8.0 was released).

Tempo does not provide support for instances on versions that have reached End of Life. The only exception is for assistance related to upgrading from our EOL version to a supported version. 


All of our products are guaranteed to be compatible with other versions released at the same time. Other versions of our products may still be compatible, but we cannot guarantee this.

For the best experience and maximum compatibility, update all of your software to the latest versions of Jira and Tempo.


Jira Service Desk

In case you are using only Jira Service Desk, you can see which Jira Core and Software versions are compatible with it here. Please use this information to select the compatible Tempo version.
