Changing Keys

You can change your keys at any time, but you must change both keys at the same time.

To change your keys, complete the following steps:

  1. Select Add-ons from the Jira Administration icon.

  2. Click Change Keys under Encryption for Jira in the left sidebar.

  3. Enter the old key, then enter a new key, or click Generate to auto-generate a key. Do this for every key you want to change.

  4. Click Save.

    If you are creating your own keys instead of using the auto-generate option, please note that keys must be entered in hexadecimal format.

    The Change Keys screen, accessed from the Encryption for Jira left sidebar.

    If you have forgotten your keys, see Key Recovery.
