Hsu Yao Chang Jul 05, 2016

Dear partners, 

Would it be possible to customize login form , such as add hint content for user account and password? How can we do it ? Thank you.

Hi Hsu,

             You need to modify velocity files which are located in Installation Directory as shown below

Path : <Installation Directory> \confluence\login.vm

ex: C:\Program Files\Atlassian\ConfluenceProd\confluence\login.vm



Please test this on Sandbox first.

  • Take a backup of file you are going to edit.
  • Turn off JIRA Service.
  • Edit with notepad++ and add you hints and then save the file
  • Start JIRA Service and see if changes get reflected.

Hope this helps.
