Stash/Bitbucket Server automated setup always starts Setup Wizard anyway.

I am trying to automate the installation of a Stash server, everything except the automated setup works.

It always starts the Setup Wizard and there is nothing in the logs, on screen or in the console. It just ignores the properties-file and launches the wizard anyway and doesn't tell me why.

The documentation at states:

If any of the following required properties are not provided in the properties file, when you start Stash the Setup Wizard will launch at the appropriate screen so that you can enter values for those properties.

But it never states which properties are the required ones.


I am using the Atlassian installer and this script.

sudo mkdir -p /stash/shared
sudo groupadd atlstash
sudo useradd -g atlstash atlstash
sudo cp /tmp/ /stash/shared/
sudo chown -R atlstash:atlstash /stash
wget -q -N -P /tmp/
sudo chmod +x /tmp/atlassian-stash-3.11.2-x64.bin
sudo /tmp/atlassian-stash-3.11.2-x64.bin -q -varfile /tmp/stash-response.varfile

And /shash/shared/

Make sure BITBUCKET_HOME is set correctly

The automated installer looks for the file
