If you see an error about needing a newer Replicated version when applying an older .rli license file while upgrading from an unsupported version of Jama Connect® to a supported one, please follow these steps.


For Internet-Connected Servers

If your server is connected to the internet, the quickest way to resolve this issue is to upgrade Replicated using the following cURL command:

curl -sSL "" | sudo bash -s no-auto

For Airgap Environments:

If your server is in an airgap environment, use the following steps:

Download the file using wget:

wget ""

2. Extract the file into the /data directory, overwriting the existing files:

tar -xzvf replicated-2.53.0+2.53.0+2.53.0.tar.gz -C /data


For most older versions of Jama Connect, it is typically safe to use a newer version of Replicated than the one recommended in the release notes. This compatibility generally applies to Jama Connect version 8.36 and newer versions, though it may not always apply. Please always make sure to back up your system before making significant changes.


Additional Information:

  • Please have a look at the official Replicated documentation for detailed instructions on upgrading Replicated in various environments.
  • If you happen to encounter any issues during this process, please open a support case and provide detailed information about the steps you've taken and any error messages received.
