Jira Login Page

i try to find out if it is possible to let Jira use the "http://myJirahost.com/login.jsp" as default login page instead of "http://myJirahost.com/secure/Dashboard.jspa"

does any1 know?

i think the dashboard login gadget needs to be removed and all non-logged in users should be redericted to login.jsp if they have to login

You can set Announcement banner public and then paste following js to announcement banner. That's trick:

if(jQuery('#header-details-user-fullname').text().indexOf(" ")==-1 && window.location.href.indexOf("login.jsp")==-1)
{ window.location = "/login.jsp" }


thats it. thank you very much

today i found out that with this script, the password reset link won't work.

how to modify the script to keep reaching password reset links such as "/secure/ResetPassword!default.jspa?"

got it...

if(jQuery('#header-details-user-fullname').text().indexOf(" ") ==-1 && window.location.href.indexOf("/secure/Dashboard.jspa") != -1)
{ window.location = "/jira/login.jsp" }


like this you can still access "ForgotLoginDetails" or use Contact Adinistrators function :)

Couldn't test it but this may cause endless redirection since /jira/login.jsp !=

Do you want to completly "remove" the dashboard? Or do you just don't want any not logged in user to have a default dashboard?

What are the arguements against the following possibilities:

  1. Remove all gadgets from system dashboard (the login gadget will be "added" when it needs to).
    Every not logged in user would get just a kind of login-page then. But logged in users may have their custom dashboards.
  2. Adding javascript to the dashboard with just loading your new location.

i don't want to remove the dashboard and i don't want any not logged in user to hava any dashboard

maybe your second suggestion could make it.

and maybe i need to make myself a bit more clear...

to try by yourself just go to your jira installation.

if you're not beeing logged in by default you should see the login gadget now and the url says something like "yourhost.tld/secure/Dashboard.jspa"

thats the thing i don't want to have. i want any not logged in user to see "youhost.tld/login.jsp" instead

Then I would suggest writing an own little gadget/plugin which only checks whether the user is logged in or not, and if he is not redirecting to youhost.tld/login.jsp. Do you need help for that?

Out of sheer curiosity, may I ask why you don't want not logged in users to not see a dashboard (even if the login gadget is the only gadget, which would resemble a login page)?

i think i will leave it like it is then...
