Howto Disable the feedback button (Project sidebar feedback dialog)

I use JIRA 6.4.1. How is it possible to disable the "Provide feedback button" on the project view (see attached screenshot)?

 Another Option would be to configure your Announcement Banner and add the following:


<style type="text/css">

    .jira-projects-feedback-collector {

        display:none !important;




This will hide the button.



Yes. But I would call this solution as a workaround.

It would be better to have a JIRA configuration option within the admin interface or similar location.

There was a suggestion raised on our public issue tracker, It has been labeled as won't fix. Although I do not know why this happened, I thought I would offer this workaround here smile

Thanks for this workaround.

If no announcement banner was actually definded, I'd add this in the "style" tag body :

.alertHeader {display:none !important;}

This would remove the small blank space added by the empty banner.

Hey there,

Please follow these instructions:

  1. Stop JIRA;
  2. Update the database with the following (please keep in mind that it's always recommended to have a database backup before any changes on it):
    insert into pluginstate values ('com.atlassian.jira.jira-projects-plugin:projects-feedback-web-panel','false');
    insert into pluginstate values ('com.atlassian.jira.jira-projects-plugin:feedback-issue-collector','false');
    insert into pluginstate values ('com.atlassian.jira.jira-projects-plugin:enable-project-centric-navigation-user-option','false');


  3. Restart JIRA.
     Users will not be able to disable the new Project layout (as the link in their user profile menu to disable it brings up a feedback form).
