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 jira.atlassian.com. 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.
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.
