This can be overridden by adding system property

Hi, after à upgrade my dev server to the last version, i cannot access to Jira. I have un license key expired message. So i copy my license key put in the box, write my admin username and password. After i clic on proceed i have this message. "User does not have administration permission. It is possible that the version you have upgraded from does not have recognized administrators. This can be overridden by adding system property '-Dnon.admin.upgrade=true' when starting JIRA." I don't know what to do. Thanks

Hey Guillaume,

You need to add that to your startup parameters:

-Dnon.admin.upgrade=true'

Depending on your OS that's done in various ways, you can get details here:

Hope it helps.

Hi Andre,

I am having the same issue.  Could you please advise how to open setenv.sh (in Linux)? I have been unable to locate this file anywhere. If I need to create this file, how do I create it? I am referring to the exact command that I need to run in the shell to create/open and modify the setenv.sh file.

Thanks,

Wajahat

 

 

Hello.

To find where your setenv.sh is under Linux you can run the following command:

  • sudo find / -iname setenv.sh

After that you can navigate to the folder containing it and edit the file using the following command:

  • vim setenv.sh

Hope this helps.
