The SiteMesh decoration module is available in JIRA 6.0 and later.
The SiteMesh decoration module allows add-ons to decorate URLs that by default will not be decorated by JIRA. This is typically the case when you have your own pretty URLs in place. For more information, please see Guide - Using pretty URLs in a JIRA plugin.
The root element for the URL routing plugin module is . It allows the following attributes and child elements for configuration:
The top level URL path that will be matched for decoration. This will cause all responses on that path to be SiteMesh decorated.
The unique identifier of the routing module.
This is a entry that will decorate every text/html response within the top level path
<sitemesh key="unique-key-for-module-type" path="/pluginpath"/>
Some paths in JIRA will automatically have SiteMesh decoration in place. For the full list and more examples see Guide - Using pretty URLs in a JIRA plugin
