Important notice for JIRA Cloud users
A recent upgrade to your JIRA Cloud instance has introduced some incompatibilities. Atlassian is aware of the issue. To avoid these issues, you should upgrade your client to the release 5.1.
This release of the JIRA client includes some new implementations using the latest JIRA REST APIs. While we strive to maintain upward compatibility of the interfaces, some incompatibilities may appear. More details are available in Jira 7.0 Support Notice.
The Atlassian Command Line Interface (CLI) supports a large range of product releases. The matrix below provides compatibility guidelines based on testing, API compatibility information provided by Atlassian, and community feedback. User's are encourage to help improve compatibility information through discussions and issues. The CLI also works with releases not officially listed here since in many cases it uses remote APIs provided by Atlassian that have been stable for many years. Check previous versions of the CLI for coverage of earlier releases. Users should verify their usage scenarios on new releases. Support normally is limited to minimum releases indicated. Client requires at least Java 1.7. Java 1.8 is highly recommended. Testing is done primarily on Java 1.8. In some cases, new actions are only available on later versions of the server - these are often noted in the documentation or in error messages.
To simplify the matrix, we no longer list much older releases even though there is some level of compatibility for these as well. Refer to earlier compatibility notes for information on older releases.
See also Compatibility for overall information on supported Atlassian releases.
This release requires all Atlassian servers and client be running Java 1.7 or higher. Java 1.8 is highly recommended. See Compatibility for more information.

Atlassian Add-on Compatibility
The Atlassian CLI supports a number of different Atlassian add-ons like JIRA Agile and Confluence Questions. We only test and support the most current maintenance release of the add-on available for the respective Atlassian application.
The CLI clients always try to maintain upward compatibility between releases. However, in some cases this is not possible. Occasionally server differences may cause some compatibility issues.
