change JIRA landing page

All, are going to move our JIRA application to a new link/server so we need our current JIRA site to present a "Site has Moved" page.  What is the best way to do this?  Should I try to configure Tomcat, or customize the JIRA landing page (system dashboard and login page)?  I looked into customizing Tomcat but it was confusing.  Thanks!

All you need to do is replace "Jira" with a web page that says "go over there" and it's a nice touch to have it contain a re-direct.

If you are running JIRA behind a web-server (like Apache or IIS), this is pretty much a doddle.  You can persuade Tomcat to do it too, but it may be easier to replace Tomcat/JIRA with another webserver that can do the redirection.

Or, if the site is handled internally, even configure the network to simply punt people over to the new site (although that has the downside that some of them will never get around to fixing bookmarks etc)
