Mentions plugin


I'm trying to turn mentions off in JIRA v6.1. the knowledge database only suggests how to do this for confluence here: it doesn't seem to work the same way for JIRA.

Please advice.

To be honest I don't remind if it's possible to achieve by the UI.

However, you can curn this off by removing the render script directly on the xml file:

1. Shut down JIRA.

2. Navigate to $JIRA_INSTALL/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/ and open the file system-renderercomponentfactories-plugin.xml.

3. Search the following entrie:

<renderer-component-factory key="citationphraserenderer" name="Citation Phrase Renderer Component Factory"
        <param name="phrase">citation</param>

4. Copy to another file as a backup, and then delete the entire entry

5. Start JIRA.

Following this procedure, JIRA should not render mentions anymore.
