You mean, You did the same as Jira for Confluence ?  Could you please explain more about this ?

 

Thank you so much

 

In /opt/confluence/bin/setenv.sh (your directory may differ) I have the following line:

CATALINA_OPTS="-Dconfluence.cluster.node.name=${HOSTNAME} ${CATALINA_OPTS}"

When Confluence starts up this automatically sets the name of the node to the hostname.

On the Jira side, you can't have a variable in the cluster.properties file. The script from @Lessandro is a hack useful trick that modifies the file before Jira is run.

Do you have any idea for Confluence cluster? I'm facing the same issue for Confluence cluster

Thanks

Hi, 

I got it.

Basically I created a bash script to add automatically the hostname in the file. Something like this:

HOST=$HOSTNAME
JIRANODE="jira.node.id = "$HOST
sed -i "2s/.*/$JIRANODE/" /var/atlassian/application-data/jira/cluster.properties

This bash is executed in every reboot via cron.

Ick.

In Confluence you can do the $HOSTNAME trick. Sad that you can't do something similar in Jira. Not the answer I was hoping for, but it is an answer.
