So, on our production and some of our test instances, uninstallations and reinstallations result in us having jira, jira1, jira2 (uid's 500,501, 502, ...) local users created, and also the resulting jira_home directory being chowned to whatever new user the installer is using.
How do we change what user the JIRA installation recognizes as being the installed user?
The install user can be any user id. If you just need the name to be same then just update the password file. If you need the uid to be same, you need to create a convention at your installation that uid will always be a Jira id.
Take a look at the following document used to setup Jira to run automatically on linux. It should give you pointers where to look and change.
