Jira hints plugin?


Noticed that a "hints" box appeared on Atlassion support page. May I know what is this plugin that can support this features? or any similar plugin that I can use for this purpose?

Thanks & regards,

Hi Michelle,

I believe this is the plugin named "jira-help-tips" under the System Plugins (Administration » Plugins » Manage My Plugins » Show System Plugins). The only way to change this tips, I believe is to customize this bundled plugin, as per the Modifying Atlassian bundled plugins post in the J-Tricks blog.

Also, for JIRA 5.0.7 you can use the JIRA Hero plugin. From the plugin's description:

JIRA Hero brings gameplay mechanics into JIRA to guide, engage and encourage users.

  • Didactic: Perfect to discover JIRA tips and good practices
  • Fun and engaging: Win achievements, gain level and find the easter eggs
  • Informative: Get the key actors at a glance for each project, component and version

Main Features & Benefits

  • Help new user to become familiar with JIRA
  • Collect badges and achievements
  • Guide the user through a succession of achievement
  • Gain rank in your own area of expertise (user, developer, tester, project manager) from padawan to master
  • Have fun discovering the easter eggs

I hope this helps!

Hello Matheus,

Thanks for your reply. If there is any plugin that can support small notification box message to the users? would be good if the plugin similar to the tips box.

The message will be some company announcement or daily update to the users. Any idea if there is any plugin that can support this feature?

thanks & regards,


No plugins that I'm aware of, unfortunately. :(

But I believe you can use the Announcment Banner in JIRA for most of the company announcements you want. Check out https://confluence.atlassian.com/x/lg_mEQ
