How to start synchrony with Confluence data center 6.6 ?

I found in the synchrony doc ( :

The Synchrony Service executable is extracted from Confluence into the home directory. It will be named ‘synchrony-standalone.jar’, and a second java process will be spawned with the above mentioned jar as the entry point.

I have this jar available in the installation dir but when I start confluence, no other process is spawned.

I found a lot of documentation to have standalone synchrony nodes in a specific cluster working with confluence data center nodes but I don't need this kind of configuration.

Is it possible or do I need to run synchrony standalone as a service ?

Do you have synchrony start up script available?.You have to start the script.


Thanks Ssasi for your answer.

Well, I only found a script in $INSTALL_DIR/bin/synchrony but i understood that it's used to start a standalone synchrony node in a cluster


If you have not installed standalone Java on the server on which you are running synchrony, change this line:

# Optionally configure JVM

to this (if you have default installation of confluence):

# Optionally configure JVM

Problem is that in script there is just call for java, which will be found if you have standalone install of Java in the environment variable $JAVA_HOME or $JRE_HOME. If you do not want to install separate Java, beside Java shipped with confluence you can use JRE in /opt/atlassian/confluence/jre/bin/java, or you can export related variable.
