Dashboard gadget to display favorite boards

Other than saving bookmarks in my browser to the boards I use most frequently, it is a pain to have to navigate the list to find them. Is there any built-in/add-on mechanism to mark a board as a "favorite" and have the list of such boards given on a dashboard (via a gadget)?

I'm looking at JIRA v7.2.8.

Thanks.

Go to "manage dashboards" on the dashboard menu, to get the various lists of the dashboards (mine, popular, search, etc).  Find the dashboards you want to save and look for the star to the left of them.

Click the star, it should turn from an empty grey star to a filled on.

Now click on Dashboards again.  As long as you've selected more than one favourite, there should be a column on the left with all your favourites listed so you can click through them.

Thanks for the suggestion. I really don't see any stars. Including a screenshot. Even the triple dot menu on the right side only contains Configure and Copy.

Arghh, I completely misread that.  I was talking about *dash*boards, not boards.

I'm sorry.  There's no "favourite boards" function in Jira.

I could imagine developing a custom dashboard gadget to show favorite boards. I don't know if there is a way to write/read database entries tied to a particular user. Any suggestions on where to look?

I'd start with the Atlassian SDK download, and build a skeleton add-on.

Your code will have access to the internals of Jira, and you'll want to use the Jira Software API to pull the data you need (you should not think about databases, do it all with the API)
