Which script to edit to enable JMX for Jira 6.4.3?

From research, it seems like I am supposed to edit the setenv.sh file under JVM_SUPPORT_RECOMMENDED_ARGS variable. 

This recognized system properties list doesn't have any of the java options necessary to enable JMX: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira/recognized-system-properties-for-jira-229180062.html

Just want to make sure I add these in the right place:

    set CATALINA_OPTS=-Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote \
    -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote.port=%my.jmx.port% \
    -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote.ssl=false \

you can add your arguments e.g. additional to the JVM_EXTRA_ARGS or JVM_REQUIRED_ARGS



Is this in the setenv.sh file in the JIRA install/bin directory

yes, thats right.


For confluence, do we edit the setenv.sh file as well?
