Chromecast support for Wallboards

We have a Google Chromecast on our dev' TV which we use as a wallboard to show the status of our sprints from JIRA.

 

JIRA doesn't seem to have native support for chromecast so we are getting around it by using Chrome's ability to stream a browser window to the Chromecast but its not an ideal way to do it and it drops out.

 

Is anyone else doing something like this? 

Is there any native support for Chromecast planned? (apparently its not a big deal to add it to a webapp)

Hello everyone!

I wanted to let you all know that due to your requests I'm creating a feature request for Jira Server, and I was able to find one already in place for Cloud.

Could you all please vote on the relevant feature request to your version, and comment on it with your usage case to support the development of such a feature?

If any of you are not yet familiar with how we choose new features to implement at Atlassian, please have a look at our Implementation of New Features Policy. In short, the more demand for a feature (comments, votes, etc) the more likely it is that it will be implemented.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Regards,

Shannon

Come on Atlassian. We need public URLs to get your data into our organizations decision making processes on a daily basis. Do a hack day and implement secret public URLs for dashboards PLEASE.

I would assume no as you can just hook a random PC to the TV that has a browser auto rotating tabs and refreshing the tabs.

I'd rather have something a tenth of the power instead of a PC (it'd also be tricky too wire our screen neatly)

As I understand it, a chromecast is just a chrome browser running full-screen with a remotely supplied URL so should not be a complex development.

I don' think I will consider Chromecast a chrome browser. I have one :) What about a single board computers like raspberry pi? It can run a linux OS and a browser.

Please implement this. We use Chromecast for all our stats and stuff, so this would be a huge improvement. Its very simple to implement, maybe it can be an Add-On.

If JIRA can publish a public url (without log in I guess) you can use http://greenscreen.io to publish content (a url) on your chromecast...

it's an opensource project by Groupon.com

Thanks Rick. I did look at greenscreen but jira seems to require a login. For another project previously I have looked at using a reverse proxy to provide the authentication details to the webserver and then re-present site without required authentication on our internal network to be consumed by the TVs internal browser (which also can't do authentication), but it seemed a little hack-y

If it helps, we started using the (Samsung) TV's internal browser, we are able to do this as JIRA's authentication is within the page rather than using the browsers mechanism.

To be fair to JIRA, the page (currently) looks as good as it would on a pc, but setting it up with a TV remote took some patience but that's a TV not a JIRA issue 

I'm really interested in this possibility too

+1 it would be great

has this ever been implemented ? 

I think this thread https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRASERVER-67358 contain answers of Chromecast support for wallboards related questions. Some people face problem to set up Google Chromecast and for those people, https://windowserrors.org/how-to-setup-chromecast/ is the best guide to set up Chromecast on TV, iPhone and iPod to make the time more exciting.
