Automation of Jira Configuration post installation


We are trying to automate the process where we download and install Jira in Linux. We have been able to do this until the point of bringing up the application by following below link.

But we also want to automate the next steps as well where we configure Jira to connect to the custom database and LDAP configuration. We could not find any documentation to help us out with this. Could you please quickly suggest?

Hi Venkateshwar,

Here is a link to an article titled Automating Atlassian Application Setup Wizards with Python and Mechanize that may help.  It doesn't have a portion for LDAP that I could find but it does show a MySQL db setup.

Also, take a look at these Communities posts that may provide some additional clues as far as how to accomplish this:

Automating Jira Installation without going through the wizard

Fully automated installation/configuration of JIRA



Thanks a bunch Branden for that info. The link which suggests using Python script along with Mechanize is the option that I was looking for and it certainly is what I was looking for.
