If you are referring to the one in the Activity Stream gadget, you will need to edit the gadget instead.

Gadgets on the default dashboard is not directly editable. You will need to go to the Admin area, and choose System Dashboard. Edit the Activity Stream gadget to change the title.

I'm trying to change the "Your Company JIRA" text in the Activity Stream gadget, also. I can't see how to do it and your instructions aren't working for me, I assume because its now 5 years after your post and maybe the admin interface has changed?

These instructions still work
Go to JIRA Administration (settings drop down) > System

Then on the left menu under User Interface > System Dashboard

Select the down arrow on the Activity Stream gadget bar and select edit

Type in the new title of the stream, scroll down and click save

Your dashboard should now display the new title 

That was exactly what I was looking for - thank you!

Has anyone else had trouble with the submit / save button not showing up when you try to configure this gadget?

Thanks a lot Dave Gillard  I found this option  ,

Thanks you very much smile

Is there any to do it programmatically ? 

DISCLAIMER: DO EDIT JIRA DATABASE DIRECTLY. if you destroy your server it is not my fault.

You should test on test server before hand.


Now, you can change the value directly going to jira db and editing the "gadgetuserpreference" table.

This should show you 3 rows depending on your setup.

SELECT * FROM jira.gadgetuserpreference where userprefkey = 'title'
