This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: How to edit the jira-config.properties file
Editing jpm.xml works, but creating jira-config.properties and overriding defaults there does not have any impact. Since which version of JIRA this should work? We are having v6.1.7.
Yes I did restart the JIRA with:
service JIRA stop
service JIRA start
Changes at jpm.xml are impacting JIRA after restart, while changes at jira-config.properties are not affecting anything.
I also verified that read/write access is same in both files and that .properties file is in unix format.The content of the jira-config.properties look like this:
# This overrides the values from jpm.xls
# Modifications here need JIRA restart
# Making custom release notes for our internal purposes, that's why editing these properties
# Adding one new releasenotetemplate to list
jira.releasenotes.templatenames = Html, Text, Custom-Text
jira.releasenotes.templates=releasenotes-html.vm, releasenotes-text.vm, releasenotes-custom-text.vm
With these changes, I cannot make my custom releasenotes to work. With changes at jpm.xml, I can make them work.
I would like to make it correctly, so that upgrading JIRA would not override customisations.
Actually when checking, no I did not. "jira-config.properties" was at same path, where jpm.xml was. My bad.
I checked from our installation (jira-application.properties and environment variables), that we had "jira.home = /data/JIRA" at jira-application.properties and no environment variable was set. Now, when placing the jira-config.properties to /data/JIRA/, in our JIRA home directory, the problem was solved.
Thank you Bharadwaj Jannu for pointing me to the problem!
