How do I change User Interface/Background color without Admin rights?

Why should I need to bother my Admin just to change the background color?  I want to just change it for ME.  It sounds like if I were to bother him, it would change it for everyone on the team, which would cause controversy!    What a joke!

Hi Victor, welcome to the Community. As you pointed out changing the background is a system setting so it indeed changes for everyone. I am not aware of any open suggestion for this but you can have a look at TBH in all my time in the community I have not seen this requested. Doesn't mean it wouldn't be a nice feature just that it isn't in high demand.

I guess no PERSONAL preferences then with Jira.  I can change the theme/background in Visual Studio and every other IDE I use.   My Retinas are getting sunburned by the white background and I don't want to force my preferences on the team!  Oh well I guess I will be  be wearing sunglasses.

Hello Victor,

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

I understand that you would like to change the background color, but currently, dark mode is not available for Jira Cloud. 

There is a feature request suggesting the implementation of such ability:

Please, click on vote and watch to receive updates about the feature.

Depending on what you do on a daily basis in Jira and if you use Mac, as Jack mentioned, you can use the Jira Cloud for Mac app where this option is available. 

Kind regards,
