How to rename kanban board

How to you rename board name? 

5 answers

I have tried these suggestions but it is not renaming the larger label below the board name. In the attached screen shot, only the 'AP Board' is being renamed. The larger 'Kanban board' is not being renamed. Please advise.

Boards (in top nav) > View All Boards > Elipsis (...) of board you wish to rename > Configure > General. Click Board Name to active edit, type in new name, and press Enter. You may run into some permissions/ownership issues.

Perfect! It worked thanks

Hi @mark,

1.Go to your board, then select more (•••) > Board settings.
2.On the board settings screen, click the 'pencil' icon (which will appear when you hover) to edit the name of your board. Press the Enter key when finished.


In Jira server, all these suggestions only rename the small greyed out name above the words "Kanban Board."  The OP is asking how to rename the big "Kanban Board" text, which is not helpful to anyone since yes obviously it is a Kanban Board. I have the same question as the OP and cannot find an answer.

I agree, this is an issue, quite an annoying one.

me too an annoying issue

I have the same question to rename it too.  But I believe, it's a style default either Scrum or Kanban Boards when we selected to create a board early.  We can not rename or delete it.

Solution:  You can only Hide menus from select more (•••) > Board settings, Create board, Hide menus

It will hide your project path and Kanban board heading.
