Can I adjust footer.vm

Currently this is my footer in JIRA:

So I found the footer.vm and by removing this line: 


I make sure that the default text is removed in emails from Jira. 

I would like to change this to:
Atlassian Academy (URL)

Need assistance, register an issue "here (URL)"

Is this possible to adjust in the footer.vm? if so, does anyone have an example or should I do it elsewhere?

I think that's the right place to do it.

A .vm file can be thought of as "processed html".  Imagine the system processes it a line at a time.  As it reads each line, it simply copies them to the output, unless it finds a directive or variable.  If your desired text is just simple fixed html, you can put that straight into the .vm, and it'll be copied verbatim.

Hi Nic,


Thank you. So it would be something like:


<a href=\"\"> Atlassian Academy </a>";

String s = "Need assistance, register an issue <a href=\"\"> here</a>";



Another related question, i found the footer.vm for Confluence but that does look rather different. Where can I get rid of the same text in Confluence?

Confluence uses a different system, I'm not sure where to change those.

As for the html, yes, that should work.
