Fresh install of JIRA 7.1. How do I change the backup location?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Automating JIRA application backups

I want to be sure that the daily backups are stored onto a separate drive.  To do this, I have created an NFS mount point (/opt/jira-backups) so that the saved backup files will be physically saved to my backup NAS drive.

This used to be a very simply thing to change.  Am I reading your documentation correctly that you have taken away this configuration option?
