Java Version Upgrade

Date of Change: 14th October 2020

We have upgraded the execution environment where your scripts run from Java 8 to Java 11.

Java 11 has started removing some modules, therefore libraries relying on such modules may cause errors.

For more details see Oracle’s upgrade guide.

In case of any issues, we can switch the environment to run scripts from your Atlassian URL on Java 8 to allow time to make any script modifications, where necessary.

Groovy Version Upgrade

Date of Change: 17th June 2020

We will be upgrading the version of Groovy that your scripts run on from 2.4.17 to 2.5.12.

We do not anticipate any significant changes in behaviour to your scripts.

Release notes are available on the Groovy website and some specific breaking changes are described in the version 5 release notes.

We advise all users with a cloud firewall to ensure the following URL is whitelisted:
