You can add some javascript in the announcement banner to remove the CSS class. Something like:

<script type="text/javascript">

This working fine.

Similarly can we disable css for Create Issue from Issue Menu?

Try changing the id of the element and it should work.

Hi Jobin,

Could you please let me know the location and name of the page related to create issue funtionality?

Hi Jobin, I cannot use announcement banner for calling this javascipt. So i am looking for the exact page to call some Javascript calls along with your code. Could you please let me know the vm file associated with the create issue page? atlassian-jira-enterprise-4.4.5-standalone/atlassian-jira/secure/views/createissue-details.jsp in 445 version but in 5.x version it seems something got changed though this file is existing.

I don't know where exactly it is (I guess in some javascript now) but that will not help you because that screen is used only after you click on the create link. You will have to disable the CSS class prior to clicking on it.

The only other option is to hack into the javascript which work based on that CSS class. Must be in some JS files in core jira.

Atlassian support site is also upgrated with 5.2.1and i observed this Create issue screen opened on a page instead of a dialog. This means i believe this should be a configurable property in the version. Any ideas please?

Hi Jobin,

The above JS code which you had suggested is to render create-issue page on a page instead of a dialog. Is there a way to open the subtask-create operation on a page instead of a dialog?

Atlassian support site is customized with plugins to handle many customizations.

You can unzip the, remove the jira-quick-edit-plugin-1.0.54.jar from the file and rezip and place in the same location. Restart JIRA.

Renjit, I am actually waiting for the answer of my other recent post.

Can you please share some ideas about it?
