Are you trying to generate a new server ID for a test instance? If so, the following is one way to generate a new id:

If you would like to change the server ID on your test installation, you will need to acquire a new server ID for your test environment:

  1. Install a new, temporary instance of JIRA. See Installing JIRA. Make sure the installation points to a new empty home directory.
  2. Start the new, temporary JIRA instance.

  3. Run the following query on your new JIRA database:

    select * from propertystring where id in (select id from propertyentry where PROPERTY_KEY='jira.sid.key');
  4. Use this new Server ID in your test instance

    UPDATE propertystring SET propertyvalue = '<NEW_ID>' where id = <ID>;

    (info) The format is 4 sets of 4 capitalized alpha numeric characters separated by hyphens. Example: BP8Q-WXN6-SKX3-NB5M

  5. Restart your test JIRA server
