rename top menus/plugins?

Is it possible to change the name of an item in the top menu?  For instance, I have the GIT plugin installed and I would prefer the menu at the top say "Source".

Hi Scott,

Here are the steps.

You will have to unzip the plugin

Find the file module where the display name is configured (using any ide of your choice like Eclipse)

save and zip it back (if its a .jar file use the command java)

uninstall the old plugin and unload this.

Note: Make sure you have the JIRA backup taken before doing this




How will this affect the update system?

Also, is there any hope of future releases supporting a feature that would allow this inherently?
