How to change Java Trust Store for Dockerfile

According to the warning on How to change the JVM parameter for a Docker container | Bitbucket Data Center and Server | Atlassian Documentation I can set the cacerts/ Java Trust Store path in my docker file using JVM_SUPPORT_RECOMMENDED_ARGS parameter, as I'm after v4.0 (7.6.0 now)

Can anyone show me how?? I cannot find an example anywhere, not even on the docker readme!

I have my cacerts in my docker home which is mapped as a volume, but obviously need to change startup params to read this location instead of the images own default /opt/.... path to its JVM.


I'm sure this is a one-liner, just don't want to mess up my install!
My docker file section for BB is like this:

image: atlassian/bitbucket-server:7.6.0
container_name: bitbucket
JDBC_PASSWORD: ***************************
JDBC_URL: 'jdbc:sqlserver://mssql:1433;databaseName=BitbucketDB'
- '/var/bitbucket/home/:/var/atlassian/application-data/bitbucket/'
- '7999:7999'
- '7990'
- backend

Expecting to add the  JVM_SUPPORT_RECOMMENDED_ARGS bit in there I guess?


Really appreciate the help on this, will solve some internal integrations :)

Hi @Jonathan Ward ,

If your cacerts file (your trust store) is located inside your $BITBUCKET_HOME folder, then you would tell your containers to use it like so:


If you're using multiple nodes in a Data Center configuration, and you intend to use the same trust store for all nodes, you might instead choose to store your cacerts file inside $BITBUCKET_HOME/shared so all nodes can retrieve the same copy from your shared storage.

Hope that helps!


Thanks, @Dave Chevell 
Slight edit on your snippet needs to be 


At least on whatever I'm running, it failed to start when I pasted this in as-is!

The good news is this has fixed my issues with integrating our Jenkins server, so thank you so much for this!
