JAVA_OPTS for JIRA windows Service

I am trying to install New Relic server monitoring on a windows server that is running JIRA as a service.

The JIRA service is set to run "C:\Program Files\Atlassian\JIRA\bin\tomcat7.exe" //RS//JIRA221112100007"

In order to install New Relic - you add the following to the catalina.bat

set JAVA_OPTS=%JAVA_OPTS% -javaagent:c:/software/newrelic/newrelic.jar

When the windows service starts it does not pick up the change catalina.bat file.

If I start JIRA manually using the shell scripts, it does pick up the JAVA_OPTS How can I apply this to the service?

Hi Joel,

You can add JAVA properties to JIRA running as a service following the steps listed at the Windows Service section of this documentation.

I hope it helps.


That's exactly what I needed - THANKS!!!
