Reference to system properties specified using JAVA_OPTS_APPEND fails startup of OpenShift pod for JBoss EAP

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Configuration adds -Dproperty=value to JAVA_OPTS_APPEND
  • The property/value is expected to be accessible for reference within standalone-openshift.xml and application code in the runtime JVM
    • This was working with the JBoss EAP 7.2 container images for OpenShift
  • During startup of JBoss EAP 7.3 container images for OpenShift, pod failure occurs prior to starting the runtime JVM

    ERROR Error applying /tmp/cli-configuration-script-<random_numeric_value_here>.cli CLI script.


  • Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) 7.3 (Container image for OpenShift)
