Community Groups file not created

When I start Jira as the `jira` user using the command 


the `/opt/atlassian/jira-software/current/work/` file is created as expected.

When started as a system service using 

sudo systemctl start jira-software

the `` file is not created.

# set the location of the pid file

Jira is normally started at power-up as a system service/

My version of Jira is 8.13.13 and I am using the dc-deployments-automation Ansible scripts from
