Change default page for project?

Currently when my users sign in and click on the project, they are presented with no obvious way to view the Kanban board I have set up for the project. I would like that board to be the main page of the project, how can I do this?

To be clear, I want the full main Kanban board as the default page when a user signs in, or at least a link tot he full Kanban board. I was able to get the kanban board displayed on the main page as a gadget, but it is missing many features such as quick filters, or a link to the full view of this board.

I don't know if there's a global setting that you can set - but each user can set Agile to be their default page. https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Changing+your+JIRA+Home+Page

If you are on OnDemand, looks like there is not way to achieve this. I am guessing you are talking about the Project Summary page. On installed variants, you may overrride the default page with plugin which can automatically redirect to an existing Kanban board.

I know that this question is a few years old, but one user of ours would also prefer to go to the Kanban board when clicking the Project links instead of going to issues or whatever else. I've checked in the Profile Preferences and don't see an option in there, so I'm wondering if this is something that again will require an unofficial modification using Greasemonkey.

Hi. Did you find a way to realize this? I am also looking for a way to jump direct to the project's board.

Hi Michaela, I haven't found a way to do it yet, but I think everyone on our team has gotten used to just selecting Boards first rather than Project.
