How to change board icon/avatar

How do I change the Icon/Avatar of an existing kanban board ?

5 answers

Hi Philipp

My understanding is that the Icon/Avatar of a Kanban board is determined by what the Kanban board is based on.

  1. Single Project based boards share the Icon of the Project
  2. Multiple Projects or based on a saved filter use this Icon

If anyone else knows better and where to change this then please let us all know...



I can´t change the icon at all:


Seems like sometimes Kanban board's inherit their projects icon, sometimes they don't. I'd love to find out how to set the board icon - seems like there's no manual way right now?

The rules in JIRA 7.3.2 seem to be the same as Phill Fox mentioned, only the icon/avatar for multiple projects is a little different.

This happens whenever your board filter refers to multiple project names, either in "project =" or "project in" clauses.

You can actually have a board inherit an icon, yet pull from multiple projects, if those extra projects come from other criteria, e.g.:

project = 'TPS' or reporter = 'blumbergh'

There is a card in the Jira Suggestions to add this as a functionality. You should vote on it if you are interested.
