Custom footer not showing on dynamic pages within Jira Server


I was investigating whether it was possible to create a custom footer which would be visible on all of our Jira pages.

I created something within footer.vm file in our DEV environment and whilst this is visible on static pages, as soon as you switch to a specific project or issue view, the footer disappears.

I have inspected the page and i can see that the atlassian-footer class has been implemented into the code but it doesnt show on dynamic pages and i don’t understand why. Is this something Atlassian prohibits?

Any advice you could give would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you require any further information.

Just to clarify, the version i have submitted relates to our PROD instance. We are currently running 8.13.11 on our DEV instance and will be upgrading PROD in the near future.
