How to fix ElasticSearch Connection issues when running Bitbucket as a Docker container



We've looked at this issue and since we are seeing HTTP 401 Errors which is cause #2 we tried following the stops to stop and start the bitbucket webapp by calling the and but there are a number of issues which prevent this solution from working.

1. The pid files do not exist

2. Sometimes even when the /var/atlassian/application-data/bitbucket/log/search/ file exists the script reports that the file does not exist.

3. When they are created manually and then the is called the bash session is terminated and then in our case the Kubernetes pod readiness probe determines that the bitbucket server is done and the pod is redeployed.


Given that the pid files do not exist which is a requirement for the troubleshooting process, what modifications should be made when running Bitbucket in docker and the elastic search (search in bitbucket) is not working due to 401 errors?

Here is the image info
