Changing JRE_HOME in cause my jira on-prem to not start Edited

I followed this

I changed JRE_HOME to /usr/bin/java

This is because I want to use the java I instlalled on my RHEL server to use OpenJDK 11


This is the error I got:

29-May-2021 11:37:29.086 WARNING [localhost-startStop-2] org.apache.catalina.loader.WebappClassLoaderBase.clearReferencesThreads The web application [ROOT] appears to have started a thread named [plugin-transaction-0] but has failed to stop it. This is very likely to create a memory leak. Stack trace of thread:
sun.misc.Unsafe.park(Native Method)
/opt/atlassian/jira/bin/ line 516: /usr/bin/java/bin/java: Not a directory
/opt/atlassian/jira/bin/ line 516: /usr/bin/java/bin/java: Not a directory
/opt/atlassian/jira/bin/ line 516: /usr/bin/bin/java: No such file or directory


I am using the latest jira software 8.17


As seen here

it says openJDK 11 is supported.

I think something is wrong with that.. 

Maybe you can start by looking into /opt/atlassian/jira/bin/ on line 516

yes I have tried a lot of different variations by changing the JRE_HOME

and I have looked in

its a bunch of variables I cant make sense of.


It seems that Jira only can work with the inbuilt installer JRE.


I used the jira bin installer to install it
