You can insert the following CSS in your announcement banner to apply custom color to issue collector tab.


.atlwdg-trigger {background: red}


Procedure to insert custom CSS

1. Just go to your Announcement Banner section and insert the following code.


<LINK href="http://JIRAURL/includes/my_css_files/mystyle.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">

2. Basically we are inserting JIRA to insert our own custom CSS file that will be applied across the instance. The CSS file must be store at the following location.




Thank you for your answer, I'm still in the learning progress of html and CSS so please bare with me.

I assume this is my banner : <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

Where would I enter this information?

.atlwdg-trigger {background: red}

Thank you in advance.
