Upgrade Jitterbit Data Loader


Jitterbit Cloud Data Loader (Data Loader) is our free product. Depending on the version of Data Loader you are using, there are two ways to upgrade to the latest version:

  • Jitterbit Cloud Data Loader users (v7.x.x and up) can simply log in to the Harmony Portal at with your existing credentials and proceed to the steps below.

  • On-Premises Jitterbit Data Loader users (v5.x.x) will need to create a new Cloud Data Loader account. You can register here. Once registered, log in with your new credentials and proceed to the steps below.


    As of February 2016, the on-premises Jitterbit Data Loader (v5.x.x) does not work with Salesforce, as Salesforce has disabled the TLS 1.0 encryption protocol and now requires a later version.

Upgrading to the Latest Data Loader


When upgrading to Data Loader version 10.70 and later for Windows, custom JAR files located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Jitterbit Cloud Data Loader\UI\lib\ will be deleted. Keep copies of the custom JAR files in a separate location to replace them after Data Loader upgrades.

Jitterbit is not responsible for any problems caused may occur with the use of custom JAR files as stated in the Data Loader End User License Agreement.

Harmony offers two project design applications, Cloud Studio and Design Studio. After upgrading your Data Loader account, Design Studio allows you to upload your Data Loader projects without rebuilding by clicking Upgrade Data Loader Project on the Design Studio Getting Started page:



To upload your Data Loader projects to Design Studio, you must be using the same Harmony account that was used for Data Loader. If you don't see your Data Loader projects, contact Jitterbit Support.
