Elasticsearch connection broken


I'm also running into the same issue but unable to see Bitbucket Homepage/setup page. 

I checked the following folder /app/var/atlassian/application-data/bitbucket/log/search and there is no File: 

When I checked the logs all I can see is below, 


2020-01-22 20:14:35,388 INFO [Caesium-1-4] Attempting provisioning in startup job
2020-01-22 20:14:35,391 INFO [Caesium-1-4] Running startup jobs for search

Can someone help me on this issue?

I am having same issue.  There is nothing in the way as far a firewall or SELinux goes.  When running by itself it complains it cannot find $JAVA_HOME.

I fixed it by changing the JAVA_HOME variable in (/opt/atlassian/bitbucket/<version>/elasticsearch/bin/ 

Its the 3rd line in the script:

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/<java version>/jre


Restarted bitbucket and it began rebuilding the indexes. In my case the connection was refused due to elasticsearch not starting and not listening on the 7992 etc.
