How to configure Activity Stream to only show updates from a specific project? Edited

I just tried to configure the gadget per project and unfortunately I'm not seeing the "Project" filter option anymore. 

I found and read this topic, but it doesn't help me because I don't have all these options. Currently I'm only able to see these 5 filters:

Can anyone please provide an option to filter my activity stream per project?

I think the best option is to use a filter instead of selecting a project. 

Do you have "Browse Project" permission on the user that is creating the dashboard? 

I don't have that option available BUT it seems that my issue got fixed, I'm now able to see the Global Filters section and I'm able to Filter by Project:

Anyway, thank you for reaching out.

Unfortunately, my initial problem resurfaced again. I was not able to find a scenario that would switch between the two behaviors ( and but I'm still investigating it. I'm sure I'm not doing something right, but I'm not sure what. 

I'll post an update here once I figure it out.

Thank you!

So this is peculiar. I’m trying to better understand what is going on. Are you saying that you are seeing different drop down options when you go to configure the activity stream gadget? That would be quite odd indeed. Have you been able to set up any activity stream based upon a project as yet?

Yes, I have been able to set it per project. I even bookmarked it while it was still working and after a while, I tried opening it from the bookmark but I was no longer able to see the Project filtering - please see video here:

well that is strange. It looks like you are on server. On cloud it works fine for me (see below). Hopefully someone on server can add some color to the problem you are experiencing.
