I have noticed that the jira installer on linux creates a new 'jira' user each time it is run, resulting in 'jira', 'jira1', 'jira2, etc., being created and used.
Is there any way to tell it to use a specifc user and not have it go and create a new one each time it is run?
As mention in the documentation : https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Installing+JIRA+on+Linux#InstallingJIRAonLinux-1.DownloadandInstalltheJIRA'LinuxInstaller'
You can also execute the Linux Installer without 'root' user privileges, although your installation options will be much more limited and a dedicated user account (to run JIRA) will not be created.
Unfortunately, that doesn't address my issue.
First, I want and need to run the installer as 'root'.
Second, I want to specify the user to be used for running jira, since our convention is to have 'role-' as a prefix for all service/system/role users.
Finally, the fact each run of the installer creates another 'jira*' user is a bug in my opinion.
