Hi Michael,

You can easily change that by going to the Project Settings -> Portal Settings and change the Introduction text (Optional) to your new text :)

I don't seem to be able to edit the Introduction text. I am the JIRA Administrator so not sure why it cannot be edited. Am I missing something?

Hi Phil - Are you on Jira Cloud or Jira Server?

Hey Phil - This is the portal settings page in Cloud and I've marked the area where you should be able to edit. 

  1. Are we talking about the same screen?
  2. Can you "click" into the text box?
  3. Is the Save button enabled?


I do not see text boxes where I can edit, nor do I see the save button. This is what I see:

Please go to project settings -> people. Do you have the Administrators role?


ah there you go... that has done it. Being JIRA admin is not enough. Need to be Project Admin too. 

Thanks for your assistance!
