Unfortunately there is no way to change the path where Stash store repositories internally and we do not intend to provide this functionality for technical reasons. You should be aware, though, that you can locate the repositories path on disk if you browse through the "Repository Settings" on Stash UI. This issue has been raised in the past and our development team has replied to it:
As opposed to FishEye which only works with external repositories in Stash we not only access the repositories but actively manage them (e.g. create the repo, change config settings, modify files). The built in assumption is that Stash owns the repositories compared to FishEye where the built in assumption is that something else owns the repositories and FishEye only access them in a read-only fashion.
We expect a certain directory layout to be followed (as outlined on https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/STASH/Stash+home+directory) and encourage users to not move the home directory if possible. The reason for that is that there are absolute paths being used when repositories are forked and moving the repositories requires us to rewrite those paths.
For Stash Data Center we also require the repositories to be available on a network mount in addition to other directories that are in the shared sub directory.
We are therefore not considering making the path the the repositories configurable.
As a workaround you could create a symlink to STASH_HOME/shared/data to make the repositories available.
Hope this helps.
STASH_HOME in a NFS is ok, but you have to make sure that this is very well tuned. Stash is I/O intensive in the way it does caching and a badly tuned NFS could cause bad performance issues and weird bahaviour.
I hope you understand.
