When I open JIRA, the page title (the <title> tag in the page, that shows up in the browser tab) shows "Project Name - Title", where Title is the one I've set in JIRA's General Configuration page. Unfortunately, the project name that it shows is the very first one I ever accessed, and never changes. I'd really like this to not include the project name at all, because we work for multiple clients and I don't want that to be visible to other clients. That is, I'd like the page title to just be what I configured in the settings, with no project title added to it.
Does anybody know how to make that happen?
The point is, it doesn't matter where I am in JIRA. The project name shows up in the page title (in the browser tab), outside of the page content entirely. It's there on every JIRA page, regardless of what I'm doing. Clearly, there's code in JIRA that's doing this, and it's a bit hard to imagine that other people aren't seeing it. Do you really see that the page title is equal to the value you entered on the JIRA configuration page?
Well, I can't post an actual screenshot because the project name is confidential (which is mostly why I want to get rid of it!), but here's the top of the page source with the project name redacted. Note the title tag.
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=Edge;chrome=1" /> <title>My Project Name - Vanteon</title> <meta name="application-name" content="JIRA" data-name="jira" data-version="5.2.9"> <meta name="ajs-dev-mode" content="false"> <meta name="ajs-context-path" content=""> <meta name="ajs-version-number" content="5.2.9"> <meta name="ajs-build-number" content="852"> <meta name="ajs-remote-user" content="asher"> <meta name="ajs-remote-user-fullname" content="Aaron Sher"> <meta name="ajs-user-locale" content="en_US"> <meta name="ajs-app-title" content="Vanteon"> <meta name="ajs-keyboard-shortcuts-enabled" content="true"> <meta name="ajs-enabled-dark-features" content="[&quot;jira.frother.reporter.field&quot;,&quot;jira.user.darkfeature.admin&quot;,&quot;frother.assignee.field&quot;,&quot;com.atlassian.jira.config.CoreFeatures.KICKASS_SEARCH&quot;]"> <meta name="ajs-admin-quicksearch-show" content="true"> <meta name="ajs-whats-new-iframe-src-override" content=""> <meta name="ajs-whatsnew-full-link" content="https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/docs-052/whatsnew/iframe?e=YXNoZXJAdmFudGVvbi5jb20%3D&amp;od=false&amp;a=true&amp;pa=true">
In case that's not clear, "Vanteon" is the title set in the JIRA configuration, and "My Project Name" is the name of my very-first-ever project. That project is disabled and nobody's touched it in quite a long time, yet it still appears in the page title.
