Enable dark feature flag when running Bamboo as a service


How does one go about enabling dark feature flag for getting REST Endpoints used for administrative purposes in Bamboo. ?

Bamboo is running on Windows Server

It is running as a Windows Service


I cannot seem to find official documentation on getting this configured then enabled and initially tested ? but appears to not have worked (as it's running as a service)  the usage section again adding to setenv.bat and restarting bamboo did not work (as initially expecting) this mentions adding, but where exactly ?

Managed to find this buried in the knowledge base

I did the 'Setting properties for Windows services via the Windows registry' method and can appears to be activated now

I added this to the end of Options within the registry setting
