Is it possible to remove the "forgot your password" link?

We're using LDAP for authentication for all users, and disallow public signup, so would like to remove the "forgot your password?" link that appears on the login page, since it has no use.

Is this possible?

There is no configuration which will remove this. You will have to download the JSP Source verison and remove it from login.jsp file.


in confluence admin / security configuration
check the checkbox External user management

Turning off or removing JIRA "Can't access your account?" display of the link in the Log In page:

JIRA - go to System-> General Configuration -> Edit top right
Turn external management ON to remove the display of “Can’t access your account?” so users do not try to change their password.

Turning off or removing Confluence "Forgot your password?" display of the link in the Log In page:

Confluence - go to Admin-> Stylesheet (under Look and Feel) add the following to the css and save.

#forgot-password {

Hope this helps.

Seems to work but any idea why it says "Note: With the 'authentication only' LDAP provider, this should be left off, as accounts are stored locally." Bit concerning...

Is it possible in bitbucket?
