Updates to wallboard themes for Jira dashboards

What’s happening

We’re excited to announce that wallboards and wallboard slideshows for dashboards in Jira Cloud plans will soon match the theme you’ve set in your personal Jira settings. Wallboards have always been displayed in dark mode, so we’re excited about the control and flexibility this change will give you.

We are making this change to more closely align with the overall theme of Jira, and give customers more power over the presentation of their dashboards.

Note: As part of this change, we're removing custom wallboard transitions. All wallboards will default to a fade-in fade-out transition.

These changes will start rolling out on August 14, 2023.

Change your wallboard and Jira theme

To change the theme of your Jira account (and subsequently your wallboards):

  1. Select Settings (⚙️) > Personal Jira settings from the global navigation.

  2. Scroll down to the Theme section and select your desired theme.

  3. Navigate back to your dashboard or wallboard to view the updated theming.

When will this be available on our Cloud instance?

Our wallboards stil show with a black background, I had hoped this would have matched style by now...

Please let me know.

Hi @Frank Rolandus

Let me know if you have any further questions.
