How do redirect to the first Service Desk portal?



I have Jira Service Desk Server and have a single Jira Service Desk project.


When users click breadcrumbs or the logo in the top left corner, they get redirected to a list of Service Desk portals, containing one link. I want them to see list of available request types.


How do I redirect to the single portal?



Redirected to

@Viktor H Companies typically configure DNS to point to their portal of choice. 

They pick a vanity url, like:  and redirect to

However, if customers click the logo they will still go to the top portal, so it's not a perfect solution.  

If you want to ensure that nobody can browse to the top level - the portal of portals - I believe you could install nginx or use Apache to re-route requests from the top portal to portal 1.

Thanks for the reply.

We tried the re-route.
The problem is, the portal is a single page web application.

So when a customer clicks the logo - no request is sent through the network.

Javascript simply changes the url inside the browser and shows a pre-loaded screen, without sending any requests through the network.


So, the redirect works when trying to load the url /portals/ but not when clicking the logo, unfortunately.

Is there any way to reach the redirection? As Viktor wrote, redirection is not comming trough network. It´s imposible to use Apache / nginx redirection.
