How do i default Remember me to true @ JIRA login?

I can fix this on Confluence easily, but haven't dug enough to do the same for JIRA v5.1. How do i set this checkbox to true always, so users will not have to relogin again and again.

You can add javascript to JIRA with something like the following:

<script type="text/javascript">
    //if the "remember me" checkbox exists, check it

Make sure that "#gadget-0" corresponds to the login iframe id, unfortunately it doesn't have have a contstant id or class.

Thanks Dennis. I'll give it a try.

@Dennis Kromhout van der Meer [Atlassian] : Are you sure this is actually working? In JIRA 6, it seems widget are loaded in their own iframes, so your code would get executed when the main page is loaded, but the iframe wouldn't necessary (probably not) be loaded yet.

I also modified %JIRA_INSTALL_FOLDER%\atlassian-jira\includes\loginform.jsp here:

<input class="checkbox" id="login-form-remember-me" name="os_cookie" type="checkbox" value="true" />
                <label for="login-form-remember-me" accesskey="<ww:text name="'alt.text.rememberlogin.accessKey'"/>"><ww:text name="'alt.text.rememberlogin'"/></label>

To have value="true" to force the remember me check box to auto-check, but didn't worked at all. All my users still have to click remember me every single time they login.

At least this setting worked on Confluence. Not sure if this value is even used in JIRA. Simply add an attribute checked or checked="" into the <input /> clause to have it check. Duh.
