I have completed the bitbucket upgrade from 4.3.2 to 5.5.1 

Below are the issues I'm facing 



>  In bitbucket 4.3.2, stack is owned by stash user 

and there is service (stash) available to start the service in linux 

> after upgrading to  bitbucket 5.5.1 , stack is owned by root user and there is no startup service available to start the bitbucket services 

As per the attlasian document , we need to use service atlbitbucket stop/start to start and stop the bitbucket 5.5.1 

But there is no atlbitbucket script under /etc/init.d


2) bitbucket 5.5.1 is not working with https url 

 3) elastic search is not starting automatically in bitbucket 5.5.1 

Please suggest on above

waiting on  response to the above issues
