How do I download JIRA installer (.bin) using curl?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Installing JIRA on Linux

I want to use curl to download the JIRA Linux installer (.bin) onto my server.

I cannot use the link invoked by the "download" button on page

The template for the filename has changed a bit since this answer. For example, for the latest release, JIRA Software 8.13.6 the link that worked for me with `wget` (I didn't try `curl` but should be the same) is:

Here are my results trying to leverage the answer above

sudo -u root curl -O              nload?file=              a-7.1.4-x64.bin   % Total    % Received % Xferd  Average Speed   Time    Time     Time  Current                                  Dload  Upload   Total   Spent    Left  Speed 100 17130    0 17130    0     0  46292      0 --:--:-- --:--:-- --:--:-- 46297


This bin is 308 MB when I download from the browser  which is not an option on the real Target platform

 head atlassian-jira-software-7.1.4-jira-7.1.4-x64.bin <!doctype html> <html lang="en"> <head> <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1"> <link href="" rel="publisher" /> <link rel="alternate" href="" hreflang="en" /> <link rel="alternate" href="" hreflang="es" /> <link rel="alternate" href="" hreflang="de" /> <link rel="alternate" href="" hreflang="fr" /> <link rel="alternate" href="" hreflang="ja" /> [ec2-user@ip-10-100-8-26 tmp]$ <link href="" rel="publisher" />


Dollars for clues.


Please and thank you

Clue:  I don't think Atlassian actually tests their documentation or answers...

That is exactly what I was getting as well.  I believe it is the first snippet for the HTML that brings up the web page that displays "Thanks for downloading JIRA Software" after which the HTML page initiates the download.  

That approach works great if you are accessing the link using a browser on Linux.

But, "curl" is not a browser...   I believe we need a URL that directly downloads the .bin itself.

just get the url in the 'file='

Thanks Gabrielle, that works.

You can now accept the answer below to mark it "accepted" smile

use `wget` instead of curl

Does anyone know the filename for service desk download?

I use this command (on linux):


and I get back:

ERROR 403 Forbidden.

But I never provided any credentials for Jira or Confluence with the same setup and works great

Any ideas?
