The provided resolution for disabling AutoComplete for JIRA login fields didn't work out


I have tried the resolution for turning off the Autocomplete for JIRA7x mentioned in the knowledge base

The "Login Form" setting doesn't give any error. But "Login Gadget" setting results in JIRA to go down. Please suggest an appropriate measures to avoid the same

I too need to modify the JIRA Login field for autocomplete. Followed the instructions on the above mentioned page but they do not work. When I examine the HTML for the login page, I see that no changes to includes/loginform.jsp have any affect. In addition to adding the autocomplete=false, I modified the style setting just to see what would happen. But there is no change in the HTML that the browser receives.

Is the loginform.jsp cached somewhere?

Did you get this figured out?  I'm also having this issue.


the autocomplete input need to be set to "off" not "false".

but still, i had the same problem, i solved it by adding a JS code in the announcement banner to add attribute autocomplete="off". here is my code : 

$('#login-form-username').prop('autocomplete', 'off');
$('#login-form-password').prop('autocomplete', 'off');
