Issue Navigator not Rendering css

Still need help?

Viewing the Issue Navigator results in a page where css/images are not properly rendered

  • There are no error logs within JIRA's logset


Using the web browser's Developer Tools, you can see that the problem is due to the load path of the css/images

  • The base URL of JIRA seems to be stripped from the requests



There is an extra "/" defined Context path within JIRA's server.xml file.


(info) Backup the server.xml file before making any modifications

  • Edit JIRA's server.xml file
  • Locate the Context path. The line may look something like this:

    <Context docBase="${catalina.home}/atlassian-jira" path="/" reloadable="false" useHttpOnly="true">
  • Modify the path and remove the slash ( / )
  • This is what you should end with:

    <Context docBase="${catalina.home}/atlassian-jira" path="" reloadable="false" useHttpOnly="true">
  • Save the file and restart JIRA
