starting jira as root - Windows


I would like to ask how to change root user to jira_user? I would like to change it on Windows, any idea?

I'm afraid your question is too vague to answer.  You can change a user to another by logging in as the other user or using a "work as other user" function.  But I suspect your question is about application ownership, logging and so-on, but I'm not sure where.


@Nic Brough [Adaptavist] I'm asking about something similar like in this topic: But the difference is that I would like to do this on Windows and in JIRA.

Create a new user, make sure it has full read/write access to the installation, then set the service to run as that user.
