Status URL for monitoring?

Is there an API call or other URL I can visit to get a status from JIRA and Confluence? I'm working on setting up monitoing with Nagios / Icinga. I can do a generic "hit the main page and check for 200", type of thing, I'd rather get an authoritative value back from the service itself.

In JIRA, you can hit the URL /status and it will return 

   state: "RUNNING"

and eventually in 7.1, it will also return "MAINTENANCE" if you are doing something like performing a foreground index.

This is a nice way too since it does not require authentication and also does not create a session on the JIRA server unnecessarily. 

Confluence also has a /status page that returns the same result.

Is there documentation on all possible responses from this endpoint?

So far we've observed:


Mainly we're curious what to do when it's ERROR (generally this is on startup and seems to not necessarily recur on a restart).

For JIRA, doesn't appear there is much besides  

For Confluence, someone submitted which ended up getting the Load Balancing section of updated.  I would assume the JIRA statuses are similar, if not identical.

I submitted a similar story just now ( to possible bolster the documentation for JIRA's statuses.  But here are the ones from Confluence, and I am guessing they are similar.


HTTP Status Code

Response entity




Running normally



An error state



Application is starting



Application is stopping



Application is running for the first time and has not yet been configured



Application failed to start up in an unexpected way (the web application failed to deploy)

There isn't a formal status API that I'm aware of, but the AppLinks Manifest end-point is a good URL you can hit for most of our products (JIRA, Confluence, Stash, Bamboo, FishEye and Crucible). If it returns a 200, your server is probably in good shape.

It does not require authentication and is available at:


in all products.




Thanks, I think this will work.

i tried above manifest, it is showing lot of other info, but not status.

how to get status of Bamboo and Crowd, like we get for JIRA and confluence - <url>/status ? if it is not there, can  you please add a enhancement request or let us know any workaround for this.

we need this, we use to show status of all our Atlassian apps.

Thanks for your help.

Not really, but getting a 200 response from the site main page should be pretty authoritative, no?

A 200 from a page that makes a DB call and/or runs a basic health check would suffice...but any successfully loading page? I wouldn't call that a proper status check.
