To prepare to update Tempo Timesheets for Server

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 Tempo Timesheets and Tempo System plugins if installed.
  2. Restart your Jira server.
  3. Install a lower and compatible Tempo 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.
