Default Jira Password

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Installing JIRA applications on Linux

When I installed JIRA on CentOS it created a Linux user account called jira. What's the default password for that account?

There is no default password and you do need one as long as it's not real user that should be able to login to the server.

Instead you can switch to the created user via su command:

su jira

You need to be root or member of the sudo group.

If you really need you can set the password via passwd command:

passwd jira

I discovered that it has a locked password rather than no password. That clears up the confusion I had regarding that user.

Ok, so how do you get the locked password?

You don't.  You need to log in as a root user and change the password to something you know.  And if you want to log in as the user, change it from a locked password to an interactive one.
