How to change your default JIRA home page?

I tried searching this already in the forum but couldn't find anything. On JIRA Cloud, the older UI version had options to change the home page by going to your profile. I could not find this in the latest UI - does this option exist? If so, how do you do it? If not, does anyone know if Atlassian is looking to put this in?

Hi Kosh,

Take a look at Set your site homepage:

  1. Go to Site administration (or

     > User management if you're not using the new Jira experience yet)
  2. Choose Application access in the left panel
  3. Hit the User defaults button at the top-right of the page
  4. Pick the default application under the Homepage heading
  5. Hit Set defaults



Thanks Kosh, but this change will be applied to the site for all the users. I wish to set a separate homepage only for my login. I tried to follow the documentation, but I guess it has not been updated with new UI as I cannot find "My JIRA Home" option on the profile page.



Did you find a solution?


The new UI feels like it took one step forward and two steps back

Hey everybody,

Just noting that with the new UI, there is currently no preference for where Jira sends you after a login. It will redirect you to your last-used Dashboard and is not configurable.

There is an open feature request to be able to choose where you're sent (per user) after a logging in to Jira specifically. Have a look and watch/vote on the feature request if it matches what you're hoping for.

Do note that steps posted earlier by Branden are still valid for selecting which application users go to (Jira, Confluence, etc.) after login, but changing this for your site will affect all users. This is separate from where Jira will send you for a landing page.


This is yet another sucky thing about the new Jira. Fed up with seeing the default dashboard.
