Configure the default system dashboard

As a Jira admin, you can change the gadgets and the layout of this default dashboard to show the most important information for your team. Note that the default dashboard cannot be deleted. 

Choose who can view the default system dashboard

Admins can share default system dashboards with their organisations or the public, but not with specific groups, projects, or people. Use this to turn off anonymous access to your default system dashboard.

To choose who can view the default system dashboard:

  1. Select > System.

  2. In the User interface section, select System dashboard.

  3. Select ··· > Share dashboard.

  4. Select the dropdown under Viewers.

  5. Choose one of the following:

    • My organization. Only people who sign in from your organisation will be able to view the dashboard. Anonymous users won’t be able to access it.

    • Public. Anyone on the internet will be able to view your default system dashboard. Anonymous users will be able to access it.

  6. Select Save.

Learn more about public sharing.

Add a gadget to the default system dashboard

  1. Select > System.

  2. In the User interface section, select System dashboard.
