Assuming I have my license server installed here: /opt/jetbrains-license-server, how do I configure it to start automatically?

The anwer of @chris-betti is correct. However for DEBIAN based systems I have three additions:

  1. ensure that runlevel 2 the license-server is also started
  2. ensure that there is a jetbrains user
  3. ensure that the PID file is in the correct location (/opt//logs/license-server.pid)

ad 1: see the script file below. You need to change the line # Default Start to read:

# Default-Start:     2 3 4 5

ad 2: Ensure that you have a 'jetbrains' system user that can start the service (and has permission to write in the directory where you installed the licenseserver

# as root
adduser --system --no-create-home jetbrains
chown jetbrains:nogroup -R /opt/jetbrains-license-server

ad 3: Regarding the PID file, you need to change the line with # pidfile: to:

# pidfile: /opt/jetbrains-license-server/logs/license-server.pid

Install the daemon:

There is one more addition to install the service into the various runlevels for debian based systems (Debian, Ubuntu). This will ensure that the service starts at boot and halts on halt.

# as root
update-rc.d jetbrains-license-server defaults
update-rc.d jetbrains-license-server enable

The script with all the changes

Here is the script with all the changes incorporated.

    • This is a more thorough and correct answer than mine. I'm deleting my answer in favor of this, so please edit your answer to make it stand alone (i.e. don't reference corrections to mine).

jochem's answer is more thorough and correct, please reference it.

First, create a jetbrains user on your server.

Second, assuming you choose to use init.d (System V), do the following:

$ touch /etc/init.d/jetbrains-license-server
$ chmod +x /etc/init.d/jetbrains-license-server

Now place the following contents in this file:

#!/bin/bash

# Startup script for Jetbrains License Server
#
# chkconfig: 345 86 14
# description: Jetbrains License Server
# processname: license-server.sh
# pidfile: /opt/jetbrains-license-server/server.pid

    echo "Starting $APP"
    /bin/su -m $USER -c "cd $BASE && $BASE/bin/license-server.sh start &> /dev/null"
    ;;
  # Stop command
  stop)
    echo "Stopping $APP"
    /bin/su -m $USER -c "cd $BASE && $BASE/bin/license-server.sh stop &> /dev/null"
    echo "$APP stopped successfully"
    ;;
  # Restart command
  restart)
    echo "Restarting $APP"
    /bin/su -m $USER -c "cd $BASE && $BASE/bin/license-server.sh restart"
    ;;
  # Status command
  status)
    echo "$APP Status"
    /bin/su -m $USER -c "cd $BASE && $BASE/bin/license-server.sh status"
    ;;
  *)
    echo "Usage: /etc/init.d/$APP {start|restart|stop}"
    exit 1
    ;;
esac

Both answers are correct though they fail in one respect,

If you are using the script for an Infrastructure as Code framework (e.g. Ansible/Puppet) which uses the status return code to determine what action to take, the script as provided, which always returns 0, will not successfully start up the application automatically when the app is stopped.

My addition to the script is to capture the return code for each of the delegated calls and use this as the exit code and the bottom:

#
# chkconfig: 345 86 14
# description: Jetbrains License Server
# processname: license-server.sh
# pidfile: /opt/jetbrains-license-server/logs/license-server.pid

# Default-Stop:      0 1 6
# Short-Description: Start Jetbrains License Server
# Description:       Manages the Jetbrains License Server Service
### END INIT INFO

APP=jetbrains-license-server
USER=jetbrains
BASE=/opt/jetbrains-license-server
RETCODE=0

case "$1" in
  # Start command
  start)
    echo "Starting $APP"
    /bin/su -m $USER -c "cd $BASE && $BASE/bin/license-server.sh start &> /dev/null"
    RETCODE=$?
    ;;
  # Stop command
  stop)
    echo "Stopping $APP"
    /bin/su -m $USER -c "cd $BASE && $BASE/bin/license-server.sh stop &> /dev/null"
    RETCODE=$?
    ;;
  # Restart command
  restart)
    echo "Restarting $APP"
    /bin/su -m $USER -c "cd $BASE && $BASE/bin/license-server.sh restart"
    RETCODE=$?
    ;;
  # Status command
  status)
    echo "$APP Status"
    /bin/su -m $USER -c "cd $BASE && $BASE/bin/license-server.sh status"
    RETCODE=$?
    ;;
  *)
    echo "Usage: /etc/init.d/$APP {start|restart|stop}"
    exit 1
    ;;
esac

exit $RETCODE

You could expand this to provide useful messages to the user based on the return code but I have not bothered to go that far.
