BigPicture disappeared from top navigation bar in Jira 7.1.2 after reboot

Hello, I started working with BigPicture and added some 'Programs' in BigPicture with tasks (issues). I turned off the server and the next morning, JIRA 7.1.2 shows with its navigation bar and options to Dashboards, Projects, Issues, Workload, Boards, Portfolio, but BigPicture is not there?

Where is all my work from BigPicture.

Luckily, I added the tasks as JIRA issues, so JIRA shows the issues, but i need the JIRA Gantt chart, as I don't know how JIRA projects or Portfolio for JIRA can offer useful charts/gantt charts to show a nice graphic timeline like the BigPicture Gantt chart?

Most likely the fix would be to:


I changed the line




After starting jira, the localhost:8081 would not load, even after 300 seconds.

I changed the line to the original text and JIRA started up fine.

I think a different command or different location for the argument is needed...any suggestions please?

I think you need to add:
