Bitbucket service fails to start after install, bundled JRE not loaded

Hello I installed Bitbucket server 4.10.1 on CentOS 6 in console mode. Bitbucket also installed the bundlet JRE.

However when I

service atlbitbucket start

I get

Atlassian Bitbucket does not support Java 1.6.0_31.
 Please start the product with Java 8 or greater.

How can I tell Bitbucket to use the bundled JRE?


Edit: solution
