Jira 6.1.4 install on same postgreSQL 9.3 database but different schema


Because of enterprise policies I tried to install two jira instances on same postgre database but different schemas. At the moment when I am supposed to save admin user I get following java exception:

java.lang.RuntimeException: com.atlassian.jira.exception.CreateException: com.atlassian.crowd.exception.runtime.OperationFailedException: No Crowd Application available. at com.atlassian.jira.web.action.setup.SetupAdminAccount.doExecute(SetupAdminAccount.java:184)

Are there any special requirements for this scenario?

Thank you.

That's not really much to do with the database, it's telling you the authentication stuff is broken. You don't need anything special for your situation (many places run one database with several applications using it for their data store)

You probably need to look into the log a bit more. But have a look at https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAKB/JIRA+is+Unable+to+Connect+to+Crowd+due+to+Application+failed+to+authenticate to start with.

But I do not have any kind of LDAP authentication.

If I install two JIRA instances on separate databases everything is working just fine.

I think that somehow Jira is messing data from different database schemas.

It very much sounds like it. Are the two settings definitely pointing at completely different schema?

I checked that with my collegues at least five times. Another interesting point is that we already have third instance running under different schema on same database, but that is upgrade from version 5.

DB Name: jiradatabase

jira instance _____ db role ________schema

jiraService _____ jiraService _____ jiraService

jiraTest _________jiradb_________ test

jiraProd _________jiraProd _______prod

Is there maybe rule about same name for role and schema?

Thank you for your help.

Hi Dorde,

May I know how everything's going? Did you manage to resolve the issue somehow? Did you discover any relationships between jira instance, db role and schema?

Is jiraProd the first instance that worked and jiraTest the second that didn't work at first? How about jiraService?

Thanks in advance!
