How to Use System JRE Instead of Embedded JRE

JIRA installer comes with its own JRE, hence JIRA won't use system JRE when its run. If you want to configure JIRA to use system JRE please follow the steps below:

  1. Shutdown JIRA
  2. Set JAVA_HOME in the script.
  3. Change the JRE_HOME value with the absolute path of your system JRE.

  4. Save
  5. Restart JIRA


The bundled JRE version is 1.6 update 26. Please check your System Information page (JIRA Admin > System Information) and see if JIRA run in this JAVA version instead of the installed JRE on your system
