I do agree that changes are overwritten by an upgrade.  We have steps in place to account for this.

That’s tends to be a really bad idea because any change you make will be overwritten by an upgrade.  The login.jsp in the war file is the output of the build, what you want is the input file.

You will find this in the directory that you unpacked the tarball into.  Edit that, run the build command to rebuild the war file.  Redploy it and test.
