How to locate JIRA HOME

  1. See this page if you are running JIRA 4.x or higher: Setting your JIRA Home Directory
    JIRA HOME can be found in <jira-install>/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/ file and see the value of the 'jira.home' property
    For alternate methods see link above
  2. For Pre-JIRA 4.x look in your Administration section:
  • Go to Administration > System Info
  • File Paths: Location of indexes
  • Backup Service: DIR_NAME
  • Go to Administration > Attachments
  • Attachment Path

    Each of that paths above make up the JIRA Home Directory in JIRA version 4.0 and higher.
