Jira Software and Jira Service Management Data Center on the AWS Cloud

Use this Quick Start to deploy one of the following Jira products from Atlassian on the AWS Cloud:

  • Jira Software Data Center
  • Jira Service Management Data Center

This Quick Start uses the Atlassian Standard Infrastructure (ASI) as a foundation. You can choose to build a new ASI for your deployment or deploy Jira into your existing ASI. You can also deploy Bitbucket Data Center and Confluence Data Center within the same ASI.

Quick Start architecture for Jira on AWS

For architectural details, best practices, step-by-step instructions, and customization options, see the deployment guide.

Network prerequisites

You need to create the required AWS networking infrastructure (VPC, subnets) by using the ASI Quick Start, or by deploying Jira with a new ASI. For details, see the deployment guide.

Deploying for production

For production deployments, avoid launching the Confluence Quick Start from the AWS Quick Start interface. If you do, any changes made to the Quick Start templates will propagate directly to your deployment. These updates sometimes introduce unexpected changes that could break your deployment.

Instead, clone the Confluence Quick Start templates to a custom Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket. Then, launch the templates directly from the S3 bucket. This practice lets you control when to apply the latest changes to your environment. See Launching from a cloned Quick Start (recommended for production) for instructions.

Development notes

Pre-commit hook

It is recommended that you install the hooks under submodules/quickstart-atlassian-services/scripts/hooks/; this will ensure that the metadata tags in the templates are automatically updated on commit. The simplest method of doing this is:

git config --add core.hooksPath submodules/quickstart-atlassian-services/scripts/hooks/

Alternatively you can invoke submodules/quickstart-atlassian-services/scripts/hooks/ manually.

Atlassian support

This Quick Start's CloudFormation templates were developed by Atlassian, in collaboration with AWS. To report an issue or request a feature, you can contact Atlassian directly.
