Skip home zip during upgrade when using a response file

Edited

Purportedly per Atlassian doc it should be possible to skip home zip creation when performing an unattended /automated upgrade. A home directory can become quite large so in real life cases not an option or very unpractical.

A manual upgrade will create a response file reponse.varfile with option

backupConfluence$Boolean=false

However, when you feed the installer with this option, the installer will still create the home zip!

There are more options that are ignored for example the option

launch.application$Boolean=false

will not stop the application from launching. BTW, this option comes from Atlassian documentation https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/unattended-installation-838416261.html

The installer itself generates a different option

executeLauncherAction$Boolean=true

As it turns out this is a known issue for some time now see CONFSERVER-35722

My workaround for this problem is to delete other reponse.varfile files that might be picked up by Confluence.
