Setting up Sonarqube 7.9.3 LTS as a service on RHEL 7.7

I need to setup Sonarqube 7.9.3 LTS as a service on RHEL 7.7
I read Configure & Operate the Server | SonarQube Docs and ExecStart is calling the java jar directly, with some java options inline. Would it not be proper to call sonar.sh so that properties in conf directories could be read/honored, or are they still used in this scenario?
Here similar doubts and alternatives are expressed, but I am not sure now what is the right way? Do I even need ExecStop for example? Which is the definite guide?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi @danhersh,

The sonar.properties configuration is still read as usual. sonar.sh additionally bootstraps a wrapper, which loads the wrapper.conf. This has an impact running it as a service, but is mostly useful for certain OS’s or init-style process runners.

I personally don’t have much experience with RHEL or SystemD, but I imagine that both options (java -jar and sonar.sh) would work just fine.

In any case, I’d be curious to know how it goes. Let me know if you run into any issues.
