Setup Jira as a service on Debian-based systems

Although the Bamboo installation guide was very helpful setting up Bamboo on Ubuntu, the Jira auto-installer on Ubuntu was just missing a very tiny detail, which is setting the Jira service to auto start after a system reboot. I searched the community but couldn't find help.

I ended up learning a bit about System V and how to make a service script rc compatible: See here: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/xenial/en/man8/insserv.8.html

Then I modified the file /etc/init.d/jira to be like the following:

#!/bin/sh
set -e
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides: jira
# Required-Start: $local_fs $remote_fs $network $time
# Required-Stop: $local_fs $remote_fs $network $time
# Should-Start: $syslog
# Should-Stop: $syslog
# Default-Start: 2 3 4 5
# Default-Stop: 0 1 6
# Short-Description: Atlassian Jira Server
### END INIT INFO
# INIT Script
######################################

# JIRA Linux service controller script
cd "/opt/atlassian/jira/bin"

case "$1" in
start)
./start-jira.sh
;;
stop)
./stop-jira.sh
;;
*)
echo "Usage: $0 {start|stop}"
exit 1
;;
esac

 

Then I ran:

sudo update-rc.d jira enable

 

I thought I'd share that in case somebody else has the same issue.

 

Cheers
