I need to set up a Test version of my current Jira Production site?

Do i need to do a new install or just clone the PRD DB and files ? 

What about the licence?

Thanks

Mark

Hi Mark,

You can clone the PROD DB and copy the install and home directories from PROD to TEST server and do the config change of dbconfig.xml with the TEST DB Host name, DB name and User/ Password so that TEST JIRA instance would start and talk to your TEST database. For licensing, you can generate a developer license from my.atlassian.com - please see this link for more info.

For creating a test JIRA environment, please refer to this article from Atlassian.

For live I have a jira windows service running how can i get one for test?


 

also i am setting up site jiratest.xxxxx.com does this look ok to you as live uses port 8080? 

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<configuration>
<system.webServer>

<rewrite>
<rules>
<rule name="JIRA Rule" stopProcessing="true">
<match url="(.*)" />
<action type="Rewrite" url="http://jiratest:8084/{R:1}" />

Garvan,

You can manually setup a windows service in Test JIRA server, for procedure and steps, please refer to this link

You can still use port 8080 on Test JIRA server since its different from PROD server.

Hi Shankar,

Thanks for your help.

I am setting up the test site on same server that I have PRD Jira running.

Thanks

Mark

We have copied the PRD setup and we are trying to get test up and running using the dev licence.

But we are having issues manually installing the Jira service for the test application.

Thanks,

Mark
