Is there a way to hide the administration banner in Jira?

I mean the yellow "You have temporary access to administrative functions.." that shows up as soon as you authenticate.

The authentication is fine, but the banner is a bit of a pain, seeing how it offsets everything else by a little bit. Is there some kind of trickery that can be used to prevent this from appearing?

Someone created a plugin to hide this in Confluence.. does such a thing exist for Jira as well?

Try adding this in "Announcement banner"

<script type="text/javascript">

where is "Announcement banner"?

That worked well, thank you. If we need to set a banner we can add the text below it and that text will show.

If using a stand-alone distribution of JIRA, another option is to modify the in the jira home directory to include the following (you'll have to restart JIRA for the change to take effect). = true

Thanks Funkhouser, I just ran that on Jira 7.5.0 and restarted the server and it worked great.  The config file was not there, I had to create it manually in: C:\Program Files\Atlassian\Application Data\JIRA

Thanks. It works for me.
