Is there full tree of available options for unattended installation?

According to this article I can install bitbucket via unattended mode


Is there the way to get full tree of possible parameters?

For example I need to answer on next questions:

Would you like to install or upgrade an instance?
Install a new instance [1, Enter], Upgrade an existing instance [2]

Install Bitbucket 6.9.1
What type of instance are you looking to install?
Install a Server instance [1, Enter], Install a Data Center instance [2], Install a Smart Mirroring instance [3]

Hi Artem,

The easiest way to get this information at the moment is to run through the installer as normal and choose the options when prompted that you want to use. After the installation completes, this will create a response.varfile inside <APP_INSTALL_DIR>/.install4j

You can make any changes as needed and supply it to the installer with the -varfile option.

When I ran through this with the default settings, this was the response.varfile created for me and should give you an idea of the options available:

# install4j response file for Bitbucket 6.9.1

This installs Bitbucket Server as a service, starts it, and does a new installation.

installation.type has the following valid options: UPGRADE|INSTALL|MIRROR_INSTALL|MIRROR_UPGRADE|

It might be a wonderful to have this example on main page with unattended installation instructions

You're right. I'm working on getting the documentation updated at the moment to include more of this information.

@Jeff Thomas Is there any progress on this? I am looking to be able to use a varfile to configure Jira to use Active Directory and can't find a definitive list of varfile directives.
