MSSQL Support for atlassian/jira-software docker image Edited

Is it possible to run the atlassian/jira-software docker container using Microsoft SQL Server without creating a custom dbconfig.xml.j2? 

Looks like the image is hard coded to use the schema "public"[1] which is a reserved keyword in MSSQL[2] and I'm guessing the code doesn't correctly quote references in brackets




Side note: is it possible to open issues or pull requests directly associated with the docker-atlassian-jira repository? Or is it just public source and not open to public contribution?

Hey @Chris

We ended up fixing this a few days after you originally made this post. It was addressed here:

the tl;dr is that we set the correct default for MSSQL ("dbo") and also provided a new environment variable to allow you to override the schema, `ATL_DB_SCHEMA_NAME`

As for pull requests, you can fork the docker-atlassian-jira repository and open a pull request - our team will review any changes and discuss them in the PR.
