Configuring the default dashboard | Administering Jira applications Data Center and Server 9.7 (2023)

The default dashboard is the screen that all Jira users see the first time they log in. Any users who have not added any dashboard pages as favorites also see the default dashboard.

Jira allows Administrators to configure the default dashboard. The gadgets on the default dashboard can be re-ordered, switched between the left and right columns, additional gadgets can be added, and some gadgets can be configured. The layout of the dashboard (e.g. number of columns) can also be configured.

All changes made to the default dashboard will also change the dashboards of all users currently using the default. However, gadgets that users do not have permissions to see will not be displayed to them. For example, the 'Administration' gadget, although it may exist in the default dashboard configuration, will not be visible to non-admin users.Gadgets are the information boxes on the dashboard. Jira comes pre-configured with a set of standard dashboard gadgets. It is also possible to develop custom gadgets and plug them into Jira using its flexible plugin system.
