Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to common questions on Jahia version 7.x maintenance and support lifecycle

The following is a list of FAQs that should address any concerns you may have regarding ongoing maintenance and support of your current version of the Jahia product. Should you have additional questions, please contact your Customer Success Manager.

Which 7.x modules will be moved to the Jahia Community?

Click here for the full list of modules.

What does it mean when a module is moved to ‘Community’ status?

The Jahia Community is our GitHub organization where any developer working with Jahia can actively communicate and collaborate. A module that moves to the Jahia Community will be made available to you with a permissive license, and you can support it yourself; we’ve updated the repositories so you can easily fork the code. You can also choose to become a maintainer/supporter of that module as a contributor to the Community. If you are interested in that option, contact us at

What if I have a bug in a 7.x module now? Will Jahia fix it?

Yes. From now until 12/31/21, we will continue to support bug fixes; contact us at just as you usually would before that date.

I want to migrate to 8, but what if my 7.x has a module that is critical to my deployment?

You have the option to upgrade your module to 8 for yourself, or as part of the Jahia Community. If that doesn't work for you, contact your Customer Success Manager for possible alternatives.

Will I be able to migrate to Jahia 8 in time?

While maintenance on 7.x ends on 12/31/21, support will continue until 12/31/22, which should give you the time you need to migrate. Contact your Customer Success Manager for help in planning your migration.

Will modules that have moved to Jahia Community be available at the Jahia Store?

Yes. We've updated our Jahia Store to make it clear which modules are Community-supported.
