After upgrading Jira my web page is all garbled

I upgraded from 8.4.2 to 8.13.1 and now when I open my Jira page everything is out of place.  The avatar icon is huge.  There are no links to go to other sections, like management, or users. Please tell me what I need to reset for this to work again. Thank you.

I decided to start everything from scratch installing a fresh copy of the latest version.

Welcome to the community.

  Can you please clear your browsers cache and see if this resolves the issue.

Hi Brant.  I did that already several times.  I also did it on another PC in the network that I access Jira from, but same results.  The Jira page is all messed up.  Is there anything I can do to reset the web site?

Can you try these steps:

  • Browse through System -> User Interface -> Look and Feel and reset all the configurations to the default
  • Reconfigure manually everything you need from the Look and Feel

I wish I could get that far in, but remember, I cannot browse to anywhere in the site.  Only to the admin user profile because I can click on the huge icon, but very few options are available to me at any page I'm able to land.  There's got to be a way to reset a file or something else to set the web interface defaults, or maybe to copy the file structure (or recover) from a backup.

I installed the latest version on our test environment and it all looks as it should.  The issue here is when I do the upgrade, even thou it seems like the upgrade uninstalls the old version before installing the new one.  But something gets corrupted during that process.

Here is the URL https://YOURDOMAINHERE/secure/admin/LookAndFeel!default.jspa  Just add your domain and you should be good to go.

I'll try that and let you know.  Thank you!

If it is truly corrupt then we will have to do something else but let me know how it turns out.

No luck.  I can get to the LookAndFeel page but all the links on that page are gone as well.  What would be my next option?

Brant Schroeder Community Leader Nov 19, 2020

I would suggest coping files from your test instance and replacing them on prod.  I am not positive on all the files you should copy so I am going to refer you to Atlassian support  so you can submit and ticket with them and they can walk you through the steps.  I am thinking it is just css and javascript issue.

Ok, thank you for your help.
