jira-config.properties vs jira-application.properties

I see two articles detailing how to edit advanced properties in JIRA. Which is accurate, or are both still valid options? Which is preferred?

Hi there,

The document https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA042/Advanced+JIRA+configuration+with+jira-application.properties refers to JIRA 4.2, which is not supported anymore.

You should stick to using the jira-config.properties file, as recommended in the documentation for the current version:

I hope the information above helps.

Cheers,

Danilo

Thanks for clarifying it. I thought this was the case, but I noticed that the jira-application.properties file still exists in the program directory (JIRA 6.1.3) to set the home location.

Perhaps the documents could be updated to make it clear which version the configuration file applies to?

Depends on your version of Jira. The first is for "latest", and valid for quite a few versions back. The 042 one is for older versions around 4.2
