autocomplete="off" works for Login Gadget, but doesn't works for Login Form

Hello,

As described on:
How to disable AutoComplete for JIRA login fields - we have made changes for login form and login gadget to disable autocomplete attribute.

But in login form case it doesn't work.

On screenshot #1:

We can see login gadget and correctly disabled autocomplete attribute

But on screenshot #2:

Login form doesn't show disabled autocomplete attribute. Despite the fact that <JIRA_INSTALL>/atlassian-jira/includes/loginform.jsp file was correctly modified and JIRA restarted. Is the manual depricated and we should modify different file/files?

Jira 7 will not automatically recompile JSP pages, so you need to modify the jira application's web.xml file.

Test in sandbox first and remember to make a backup, then inside <JIRA_PATH>/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/web.xml remove/comment

<!--
<servlet>
<servlet-name>jsp.login_jsp</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>jsp.login_jsp</servlet-class>
</servlet>
-->

 

<!--
<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>jsp.login_jsp</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/login.jsp</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>
-->

Restart jira

It works! Thank you very much!

Any suggestions?
