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


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.


I can't get this to work either.  I am using DC.  I don't have the ability to choose just one project.  Our company has hundreds of projects and an activity stream for all of them is meaningless.  Interestingly, if I go back to older dashboards; it works fine.  When I edit these old dashboards, I have an option to select projects.  However, I lose that on any new dashboards.  Please HELP!

@Daniela Tiponut did you manage to find out what's the problem? Facing the similar issue with you here

@Azfar Masut I didnt find any fix for this, but I don't see this issue anymore, it kind of got fixed by itself. 

I am seeing exact same issue.  Confluence is linked fine to Jira.  Issue caught our attention when a user brought it to us.

Using Jira DC.

- Confluence space is using Jira ACtivity stream and I can see he has project linked to his project.  I can see tickets, but when I click on them it takes you to Confluence dead space not jira.

- Created a test page, added the activity gadget and when configuring it to match, I no longer see project, i see space, Jira Issue Key (which also doesn't work), username or update date.


I do not have option to set project anymore, also for whatever reason when clicking on the jira ticket in the activity stream that was configured before issue, I get linked to a confluence dead space.

Ok update.  I found out there are two activity stream gadgets, one for confluence and one for jira, so I can get it to work now with "Project is XXX" set, however when I do click on the ticket that is displayed, it takes me to a dead confluence page again.

Why flagging Jira issues is so cool?

Adding a flag to an issue is a cool way to say it is blocked. Also, you can add a comment as part of the same action from a board. But what if you want to do the same from the issue detail view? Th...
