By default boards will (should) display user avatars for each user that has an issue currently on the board. These are independent of manually created quick filters. So I’m unsure what your goal is. Are you not seeing these avatars? You image seems to convey you are.

Jack Community Leader Feb 23, 2021

OK so I assume these quick filters would represent users other than the assignee, e.g. maybe the reporter?  In any event you can’t do that with quick filters at least not out of the box. You might check marketplace.



Thanks for the prompt response. No that is not the case I can see the avatars.

What my requirement is to create quick filters with avatars for the new board(different board by taking example as shown in the below screenshot).

Jack Community Leader Feb 23, 2021

I’m lost. Let me back up. When you create a board, by default the board will display avatars at the top (as in you image). These avatars represent any Assignee that has an issue on the board. It will not show an avatar for a user if they do not have an issue that is on the board at that moment. At least this has been my experience. Can you provide an image of what you’re saying where are you do not have the avatars?



As shown in the above screenshot issues are displayed with avatars, not with names of the users or assignees

Jack Community Leader Feb 23, 2021

Yes exactly. That reflects my point. Isn’t that your goal? Doesn’t that image represent what you want and what you have? Show me an image where you are not seeing the avatars but desire them.

Actually, the client has shown this image and asked me to configure the new board like this.

Here my question is it possible to achieve this requirement on the data center side because the screenshot is from the cloud side and I want to do it on the data center.

I cannot show the image because I need to achieve this requirement.

Hi Nani, the DC piece is quite important and this is where my confusion lies as your post is associated w/ Cloud and in Cloud this is precisely how it works. Unfortunately I do not have any experience with DC but I do not believe that this is available based on past experience and understanding. I can refer you to the documentation

Sorry Mistakenly posted

Hi @Nani

no - there is just a difference between Cloud and on-premise Jira (Jira Server / Jira Data Center) - the codebase diverted over time, basically what we are seeing are two products which will have distinctive features as time goes by (best example is next-gen functionality which is just not there on Jira Server / Jira Data Center).

Here is a comparison of both Kanban boards on Jira Cloud (first picture) and Jira Server - it is not possible to get what you explained from Jira Server / Jira Data Center in that way.


If you feel this is a great feature you always can raise a Suggestion on
