How to check from linux command line if specific jira add-on is enabled? (For monitoring)

Hello,

For monitoring purposes, please suggest, how to check from linux command line if specific JIRA add-on is enabled?

I hope there is better option than digging through JIRA logs to get last status.

BR,

Andris

The logs are about the only way to do it.  And they're not reliable because it is possible to turn off add-ons without lines going into the logs.

You could read the database for the "add-on enabled" flag.  That's more reliable than the logs, but not really "command line"

Hi Andris, 

 

As Nic said, this won't be so reliable due the possibility of turn off add-ons. Also, sometimes add-ons have submodules which means, you can have the plugin enable, but a sub-module disable which can cause a false/positive return. 

But if you don't want to go deep, and just check the status by logs, looking for the add-on name. You could create a script using a tail -f (to check in real time) and to use some |grep to check if that add on was started or you are getting some error into the logs. 

 

Regards, 

Renato
