Adding Meta-Tags to JSD portal


i am working on hiding a Jira instance from search engine robots and found this article:

I will try this, but i can also see the login page from the SD portal in the google search results:


Id be surprised if the article above also does something for the service desk.

Any idea how to fix that?

That KB is really intended to help admins insert a specific google tag for their content.  If you want to remove your site from google search results, try this KB instead: Removing a JIRA instance from Google results

I believe these steps should be sufficient to remove both Jira and Jira Service Desk page results on the same address. 

There is also a related thread about removing your site from google search results in in it Alexander lists the steps he took within Google's webmaster tools as well to file a removal request.

Thank you Andrew,


we already placed the robots.txt but the service Desk page keeps being indexed.


We'll look into solving this using the Webmaster Tools.


have a great Day
