How to change /status response?


I'm currently evaluating JIRA DataCenter version. I learned, that there is a status page in JIRA at http://<my-jira>/status , which returns a JSON reply of "{"state":"RUNNING"}" as well as a HTTP_STATUS of 200 when everything is OK.

How can I change this to something else, like {"state":"MAINTENACE"}, for example to inform my health probes to not flip out and to gracefully remove that one node from the cluster by informing the LoadBalancer of the maintenance this way?

Hi Marc,

I know that you can change that state to maintenance when that specific node is doing a foreground lock and reindex.  This is also explained in the KB

Right now, I do not know of another way to manually change that /status for a node in a data center cluster.  I did find this feature request to permit admins to set the status manually over in

If implemented, I think it would give you the ability to manually set a status for a node.

I hope this helps.
