Zephyr Squad Support End of Life Policy

This document outlines the End-of-Life (EOL) policy for Zephyr Squad in alignment with Atlassian's EOL policy for Jira Data Center. Our commitment is to provide support and updates for versions of Zephyr Squad that are compatible with Jira Data Center releases that are not EOL.

Jira Data Center Dependency

Zephyr Squad relies on specific Jira Data Center versions. We ensure that new releases of Zephyr Squad are compatible with Jira versions currently supported by Atlassian and are not EOL. Once Atlassian declares a Jira version as EOL, we will no longer provide new releases or updates compatible with Zephyr Squad to support that specific Jira version.

Supported Jira Versions

  • We only support Jira versions that are supported by Atlassian, i.e.,

    • New versions of Zephyr Squad won’t be compatible with unsupported Jira versions.

    • We won’t provide support for Zephyr Squad if running on an unsupported Jira version.

  • New versions of Zephyr Squad are released based on the latest version of Zephyr Squad available. Intermediate minor/patch versions will not be released. You may need to update to the latest version of Zephyr Squad available to get bug fixes, improvements, or new features.

The following table outlines the Jira Data Center versions and the corresponding versions of Zephyr Squad that are not EOL:
