How to change the Server ID of an existing JIRA installation? (e.g. cloned development system / staging system)

I ran into trouble when I wanted to link two JIRA instances together using the Application Links feature. It would always give me the following error message:

This application has the same ID as myself. Can't create link to myself.

I actually found a solution in Atlassian's Confluence ( but it seems to be outdated.

I wrote the following query to find the string in a JIRA 4.4.1 instance:

SELECT * FROM [jira_db].[jira].[propertystring] WHERE propertyvalue like '____-____-____-____'

Just edit it and restart JIRA.
