I want to change the directory of the attachments on Jira server (v8.5.2). According to this article, I can create a symbolic link to point to the new location, which is a separate disk partition in a network drive. My question is about the detailed steps in such an operation as they are not officially documented. In my view, there will be downtime:
The underlying OS is Windows Server 2016. So, is there anyone who did change the attachments? Did you face any unexpected issues? What are your thoughts in the steps I mentioned?
Hi JP, thanks for the response. I fixed the issue with the link. This is what I am going to try but I wanted to know beforehand what are steps.
Can I directly run the mklink command without taking Jira down? Do I have to move the existing attachments after or before creating the symbolic link?
