how to add html announcement banner via or sql

hi folks

according to this KB Page

i try to set the jira.alertheader via this property file..

how do i use this option? i didn't find any detailed explanations on how to insert multi line html code

i tried with just a simple "jira.alertheader= Test Info" but no announcement is shown.

or is it not possible to set that in ?

i found out it can be set in the database directly

select, pt.propertyvalue from propertytext pt join propertyentry pe on where pe.property_key='jira.alertheader';

and then

update propertytext set propertyvalue='' where id='<id from above>';

but i think the other solution is more comfortable isn't it?

background info:

i use a restore script to clone jira from production to standby...

on the standby host i need an announcement banner (public) to inform the user that he is not on the backup system.

thank you

Using sql works

inserting into the database also not works for me

oh lord...just now i see the note that this is an old version of the page....

as there is no version for current jira relase it means it won't work?

really no idea?
