Problem Displaying Kanban Board Name ...

We have a Kanban board named "RFP Kanban Board".  When you view the board, the name "RFP Kanban Board" is displayed across the top, as one would expect.

We have another Kanban board named "All Active RFPs".  When you view this board, the name "Kanban Board" is displayed across the top, not "All Active RFPs" as one would expect.

Can anyone suggest what we've missed ?  The boards were created by different users - could it be a permission issue ?   JIRA v6.4, JIRA Agile v6.6.68.

Hi Kelly,

If I'm not mistaken, you're coping with this known issue in JIRA 6.4.x:

If so, please vote on it and watch it for future updates from the team.


Hi @Andy Nguyen , Is there a way to see the name of the kanban instead of "Kanban Board"?

Georges, In the meantime while the suggestion above is considered, you should be able to get this to work using a workaround. You can create a dummy project, say 'Dummy' and include it in the board's filter. This will allow the title to display instead of Kanban Board. I have tested this myself and confirm it works. Hope this information helps. Andy Jean
