How to run/install JIRA as a service in macOS Catalina?

To use the latest JIRA with macOS Catalina, currently i always have to login and run the to get it started. How do I use it as a service instead? I mean, how can I run it without having to start the shell script manually after rebooting the system? Adding to “Login items” did not help – JIRA fails to start this way.

Hi @Marcus Beyer 

I never really tried it myself, mainly because I hardly restart my mac unless it freezes :) but Atlassian did write about this on this page. May be it will work, I might also try. For my development instance I don't really mind doing "mvn jira:debug" manually to start Jira but having it start automatically on reboot would be nice.


Thank you! This works, but only after login. Is it possible to start JIRA directly on macOS start?

Moving ~/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.atlassian.jira.plist to  /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.atlassian.jira.plist did seem to change anything.
