Atlassian JIRA wrapped in a Docker image
Full Description

Atlassian JIRA Core in a Docker container

This is a containerized installation of Atlassian JIRA Core with Docker, and it's a match made in heaven for us all to enjoy. The aim of this image is to keep the installation as straight forward as possible, but with a few Docker related twists. You can get started by clicking the appropriate link below and reading the documentation.

If you want to help out, you can check out the contribution section further down.

I'm in the fast lane! Get me started

To quickly get started running a JIRA Core instance, use the following command:

docker run --detach --publish 8080:8080 cptactionhank/atlassian-jira:latest

Then simply navigate your preferred browser to http://[dockerhost]:8080 and finish the configuration.


This image has been created with the best intentions and an expert understanding of docker, but it should not be expected to be flawless. Should you be in the position to do so, I request that you help support this repository with best-practices and other additions.

Travis CI and CircleCI has been configured to build the Dockerfile and run acceptance tests on the Atlassian JIRA Core image to ensure it is working.

Travis CI has additionally been configured to automatically deploy new version branches when successfully building a new version of Atlassian JIRA Core in the master branch and serves as the base. Furthermore an eap branch has been setup to automatically build and commit updates to ensure this branch contains the latest version of Atlassian JIRA Core Early Access Program.

If you see out of date documentation, lack of tests, etc., you can help out by either

  • creating an issue and opening a discussion, or
  • sending a pull request with modifications (remember to read contributing guide before.)

Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery is made possible with the great services from GitHub, Travis CI, and CircleCI written in Ruby, using RSpec, Capybara, and PhantomJS frameworks.

Yes, it is possible. I would recommend starting with JIRA and setting up users etc. then linking with Confluence.

just make sure when you log in to container bash that you are a root user -> simply add " -u 0 " before the container name

You have the link for Jira Service desk listed as which returns 404, looks like it should be instead.

You forgot the word "jira" in between atlassian and service

@joelcraenhals I just achieved this by editing server.xml directly on the host filesystem. There are plenty of guides on what to add in order to set up https with tomcat. I myself set up a reverse proxy in front of this container and followed the steps in this guide to configure server.xml to work in this configuration:

I want to modify the docker image in order to enable HTTPS on port 443. How to do this?
