How to increase number of Recent Projects in JIRA?

How can I increase the number of recent projects in JIRA from 5 to 10. 

I know it's Atlassian is not providing that feature right now But how can I achieve it? Capture.PNG

I want a solution to this too!   Either 10 items would be great, or a quick type-ahead like on the JQL simple search builder

You can't as this is hardcoded to 5 in the class that provides the menu items for the top navigation bar.

Can I create a plugin and do it with that? 
Like I could add a web-section and keep track of recent projects (somehow).

would this direction be viable or not?  

Yes you can implement your own dropdown showing the list of recent projects. Check these for guide/samples

The problem is that you'll then have two drop-down menus showing a list of projects and the only way you can hide the original menu provided by JIRA might be a bit hacky - you need to create a css file which is included globally on all pages which sets the "display" of the original menu to "none".

Okay, thanks for you help. I'll look into this smile

Thank you for your question, we have exactly the same requirements. 5 entries is just too less. Is there a jira feature request yet to make this setting configurable?

 

I could not find one yet.
