Will Disabling Autocommit in the MySQL Database Adversely Affect Crowd?

Lorenzo Raras August 14, 2023

We have a Crowd 5.0 instance and a Jira 9.1 instance connected to it.  Their databases are both hosted in the same MySQL instance.

We recently upgraded to MySQL 8.0 and everything seems to be functioning normally.  However, in the documentation here, it specifies that Jira requires the "autocommit" field in the my.cnf to be set to false.  In the documentation here, it does not specify to disable that setting explicitly when configuring the database for Crowd.

Will having autocommit turned off in the database adversely affect Crowd in any way?

No, it needs to be set that way, otherwise you may find you get deadlocks in the database, which will stop people from logging in.  It won't happen often, and the symptom is a hung login, which the users can refresh the page and probably be able to log in again, but it can happen.
