System dashboard - Permission

How can I view and modify the System Dashboard permission.

By default is it set to Public and able to accessed outside the org?

There is no way to make the system dashboard  private.  You never want to, as it's the landing point for users who have not chosen something else.

Jira and system admins can amend what is on it. 

If you're worried about "leaking" information that you should not, then the system dashboard respects the permissions and visibility that you set in the project level - if you can see something on the dashboard, making the dashboard private is of no use, the issue that it's reporting on can be seen and that's where you need to think about the privacy

Thanks for the response Kagithala Babu Anvesh, but I was referring to "System Dashboard" with no owner associated with it. 


Seems like it has to be public, and we need to set the global permissions correctly so that the content is not exposed to not-logged in users, reference:

Hi @Kiruthika ,

Are You jira admin, if yes 

Go to Dashboards -->View all Dashboards --> 


Click on settings (...)

Edit and Share Dashboard

Choose the settings  from the dropdown as below 


There isn't an option to mark the "System Dashboard" as private in Jira Cloud. The interface you showed is what is possible for every other dashboard other than the "System Dashboard".
