Using jQuery in Jira

If you want to make some customizations for your JIRA install using javascript then there are some good news; jQuery is bundled into the package. The only small downside is that you’ll have to bind the $ alias yourself:

(function($){
   $(document).ready(function(){
      //your code here
   });  
})(AJS.$);

The AJS, Atlassian JavaScript, is a library that you can use when making gadgets in JIRA, but you can also use if if you’re just adding features in your banner. The documentation can be found here.
