Descoped Atlassian Jira Software
Atlassian Jira Software is an issue tracker.
For all other aspects about configuring, using and administering jira please see The Official Jira Documentation.
How to use?
The examples shown below assume you will use a MySQL database.
Please pay attention to the IP addresses used in the examples below. The IP
192.168.1.2refers to your host OS. The IP
172.17.0.2refers to the MySQL database and the IP
172.17.0.3to the newly installed jira guest OS. To figure out the IP in your guest OS you can either connect to a running instance by issuing
docker exec -it [container-name] /bin/bashand do
ifconfigor locate the IP from
docker inspect [container-name].
- MySQL 5.5 or 5.6 (please notice that Jira is not compatible with MySQL 5.7)
- PostgreSQL 8.4+
Important notice: The Postgres driver is shipped with the jira distribution, whereas the MySQL driver will be downloaded when running the image.
MySQL setup (assuming that MySQL isn't installed yet):
$ docker run -d -p 3306:3306 --name mysql -v /var/mysql:/var/lib/mysql -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=[db-password] mysql/mysql-server:5.6 $ mysql -h 172.17.0.2 -u root -p[db-password] CREATE DATABASE IF NOT EXISTS jiradb CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_bin;
If you use a default Docker installation with no images installed, the assigned IP for MySQL will be:
Optionally you may configure security constraints by:
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON jiradb.* TO '[appuser]'@'172.17.0.3' IDENTIFIED BY '[apppassword]' with grant option;
Please notice that the
[apppassword]must be configured to what is appropriate for your system.
Run docker using port 8080 on your host (if available):
docker run -p 8080:8080 descoped/jira
Run with data outside the container using a volume:
$ docker run -p 8080:8080 --name jira -v /var/jira:/var/atlassian-home -e CONTEXT_PATH=ROOT -e DATABASE_URL=mysql://[username]:[password]@172.17.0.2/jiradb descoped/jira
To stop the running instance:
$ docker jira stop
To start running instance:
$ docker jira start
The mappable VOLUME is:
The host IP is assumed to be
The connection to the database can be specified with an URL of the format:
[database type]://[username]:[password]@[host]:[port]/[database name]
database type is either
postgresql and the full URL look like this:
Configuration options are set by setting environment variables when running the image. What follows it a table of the supported variables:
|CONTEXT_PATH||Context path of the jira webapp. You can set this to add a path prefix to the url used to access the webapp. i.e. setting this to
|DATABASE_URL||Connection URL specifying where and how to connect to a database dedicated to jira. This variable is optional and if specified will cause the Jira setup wizard to skip the database setup set.|
