Thw file won't be there by default. You will have to create it the first time in the Home Directory.

Thank you Jobin for making that point more explicit.

But how shall i crete this file....tellme the steps

Hmm..Just create it as you do with any other file. The name should be jira-config and extention should be .properties. That's all.

Once created, add the key/value pairs aand restart jiRA.

On my server it didn't exist. I had to create a new file by that name in the Jira Home Directory located here: "C:\Program Files\Atlassian\Application Data\JIRA". The .properties file of mine just contained the following three lines:

# Make Date/time stamps actual rather than relative = false


You did not state which OS you are using, so you need to read these two links and figure out where your Jira home directory is located.

could someone just cut and paste an example of a file in here?

I know wheres its meant to be. Thanks

jira.table.cols.subtasks = issuetype, status, assignee, progress, fixVersions

This is all you might have. Basically it is:

propertyKey = propertyValue

Is there a way to test to see if the system is definitely picking up the values you enter.  Is there page that shows the config changes loaded in the system from this file?

Some notes:

- Comments can be added to the file with a '#' mark at the beginning of the line.

- Also, strings values must be surrounded with quotes. For example:

#this is a comment
jira.projectkey.warning = Your custom projectkey warning text would go here.

Please take a look on How to edit the  document for full details on that matter.
