Hi @Swati Malhotra ,

Display your specified HTML text on the dashboard. 

  • This gadget is only available if your JIRA administrator has enabled it. It is disabled by default because it is a potential security risk, as it can contain arbitrary HTML which could potentially make your JIRA system vulnerable to XSS attacks.
  • To enable the text gadget: Choose System > Add-ons. The 'Find add-ons' screen shows add-ons available via the Atlassian Marketplace. Choose Manage add-ons to view the plugins currently installed on your JIRA site. Enable the Text module in the Atlassian JIRA - Plugins - Gadgets Plugin (You need to select the System add-ons from the drop-down).
  • If you cannot enable the text gadget, please contact Atlassian Support for assistance.

Hi @Swati Malhotra 

If using Jira Core Cloud this is not supported. An alternative is available using the Rich Text Gadget for Jira.


Text Gadget

Not supported. This gadget creates an XSS vulnerability as it can contain arbitrary HTML. Due to security concerns, this feature is currently unavailable.
