Jira has a /status that can be used as an health check for load balancer ect.
So it would respond with:
But. while preparing the database at the setup step, it simply doesn't respond. Nothing does.
Also, when applying the license during the setup, we get the same (or lack thereof).
This basically make it useless for a health check.
Is this done intentionally by design ?
If we look at the documentation, a 404 indicates "Application failed to start up in an unexpected way (the web application failed to deploy)", yet this is not the case of setting up a database or license.
Are there any other way to check the health of Jira ?
