Need to replace the JIRA link to help page

Hello! I develop with JIRA 4.1.2 on a closed network. Right now, on the Advanced Search page, there's a link titled Query Syntax that goes to a help page. We don't have access to that page on our network. How can I replace that link with one that I want??

My only thought was to replace the whole page and substitute our link in it, but that seems like overkill...

  1. (Optional) If you want JIRA's help links ( ) to point to your local documentation, you will need to:
    1. edit JIRA's /WEB-INF/classes/ file and change the url-prefixline so that it points to the 'JIRA' space in your local Confluence site, e.g.:
    2. restart JIRA.
This is what I was hoping for! Thanks much!!

You are welcome! ;)

You could use a proxy to redirect to another site.


You can use your hosts file (it's a system file in windows) to make an entry which redirect to another site.

I hope this will help you!
