Our team is running the latest version of Crowd on EC2. Currently we follow the steps below to deploy crowd to an EC2 server.
How can I automate steps 5 - 8?
1) Upload Crowd.tar.tz file to an EC2 instance
2) Unzip file
3) Configure Crowd HOME directory by modifying a Crowd configuration file
4) Start Crowd by running Crowd startup command
5) To configure Crowd, launch the new Crowd URL from a web browser, get the server ID from Crowd’s web page
6) Using the Server ID, login to Atlassian’s website to request a temporary license key. To do so, you will need to answer a few questions from Atlassian on why you need a temporary Crowd license key
7) Back to Crowd’s web page, enter the new key generated by Atlassian
8) Launch a separate web browser, login to old Crowd app, export the latest database to a xml file, and then import the xml file into new Crowd via the new Crowd web page
9) Request a SSL Cert to allow https access.
10) Request Crowd Domain changes
11) Transfer existing Crowd license from old Crowd to the new Crowd
