Startup check: Creating and editing the dbconfig.xml file
Platform Notice: Server and Data Center Only - This article only applies to Atlassian products on the server and data center platforms.
This file (located at the root of your JIRA home directory) defines all details for JIRA's database connection. This file is typically created by running the JIRA setup wizard on new installations of JIRA, or by configuring a database connection using the JIRA configuration tool.
You can also create your own
dbconfig.xml file. This is useful if you need to specify additional parameters for your specific database configuration, which are not generated by the setup wizard or JIRA configuration tool. For more information, refer to the 'manual' connection instructions of the appropriate database configuration guide in Connecting JIRA to a database.
