jira-config.properties missing

I have a couple questions.

I cant seem to find the jira-config.properties file that is often referred to.

I was trying to disable the xsrf token checking because some of our developers have become annoyed with this.

in https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/Form+Token+Handling

it says to set

however i cant find the jira-config.properties file. I do see a jira-application.properties file.
All of the atlassian documentation talks about customizing with this file.

jira-config.properties must be put in the JIRA Home foler. There won't be one initially. You can just create a empty property file with that name and start adding the properties into it.

There is no format, just put


in an empty file named jira-config.properties

Thanks Jobin, do you know what the format of the file is. Do you have an example?

JIRA Home...

one last question, should that file be in the

C:\Program Files (x86)\Atlassian\JIRA\atlassian-jira\WEB-INF\classes folder

or in the actually Jira-home directory

C:\Program Files (x86)\Atlassian\Application Data\JIRA
