      Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for JIRA Service Desk Server. Using JIRA Service Desk Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      Description of Problem:

      JIRA Server instances that have had JSD in the past may have trouble installing JSD 3.2+ if they ever had JSD in the past and did not go through JSD 3.0/3.1 to complete the necessary upgrade tasks.

      In some cases JSD data is unwanted and can be deleted. For example when JSD was previously installed as a trial.

      Suggestion

      Add a supported method for removing all JSD data from the instance.

      Use case and suggestion:

      1. Customer upgrading from JSD 2.5.9 or under and does not wish to keep any JSD data (JSD was a trial, or any other reason)
        • If desired, customer is able to remove all JSD data so that they can install JSD anytime in the future
      2. Customer who is currently running JIRA 7.2 and up and is trying to install JSD. Unbeknownst to the customer JSD was installed in earlier version and 3.0/3.1 upgrade tasks were not completed.
        • Customer is able to drop all JSD data so that they can install JSD without having to attempt downgrade.

      Suggesting adding a startup flag that tells JSD to drop all JSD data

      Workaround

      There is currently no supported workaround. Directly modifying the JIRA database to remove JSD data is not supported.
