Add restart option to /etc/init.d/jira

Can we simply add a restart option to /etc/init.d/jira?

<     restart)
<       ./stop-jira.sh
<       ./start-jira.sh
<       ;;

<         echo "Usage: $0 {start|stop|restart}"
---
>         echo "Usage: $0 {start|stop}"

You can do something like:

#!/bin/bash
cd "/path/to/jira/bin"
case "$1" in
    start)
        ./start-jira.sh
        ;;
    stop)
        ./stop-jira.sh
        ;;
    restart)
        ./stop-jira.sh ; sleep 4 ; ./start-jira.sh
        ;;
    *)
        echo "Usage: $0 {start|restart|stop}"
        exit 1
        ;;
esac

;D

know I can do that - in fact I posted the code. But each and every time I go to install JIRA I have to remember to do it again. That's why I want them to do it!

P.S. I don't understand why you have the sleep. Works fine without it...

oh, gotcha ya! :D The sleep is just and old habit..

You don't look that old! ;-) So you're saying that this suggestion, that could be fixed in seconds, has been languishing around for 2 1/2 years...
