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?
sorry late to the party.
I found this and working for me.
Go to Personal Settings
1. Click on the profile picture on the right, a drop-down with options can be seen second option under Jira is personal settings ( in the latest cloud version sep 1, 2021)
2. Click on Personal Settings and scroll down to see "Your Jira homepage"
works like charm for me
looks i was having similer issue, whenever i login and select my project..JIRA would take me to some random issue list with query parameters for some defect.. where as i wanted to set summary page as my default page whenever i select that project from resent projects list or from some other location and i think i found a solution...and it worked for me..
lets say you want to set the summary page of project 1 as your default page for that project so that whenever you login or switch between projects in the same session
1. first go to the page of the project which you want to set as your default home page
2. copy the URL
3. log out and clear cache
4. start new browser session and hit copied URL https://xyz.atlassian.net/projects/<projectkey>/summary
5. once you login, summary page becomes default page. now it will become your default irrespective any number or cache clear or login logout..
hope this helps
You can change the default landing between Dashboard, Boards, Structure, etc if that is what you are looking for. Hover over your profile icon in the upper right corner. You'll see a dot next to one of the options. Select the blank space next to one of the other options to change it.
First, go to your default home page. It probably shows my work section, At the top right, it showed three dots where I clicked- Set dashboard as my default home page. It prompts you to give a reason to do so. After that dashboard shows up on the default home page.
Take a look at Set your site homepage:
> User management if you're not using the new Jira experience yet)
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.
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.
I have to say that this is a problem for me as well. We are required to log out every night, so Sachin's solution, while a clever workaround, would have to be done every day.
This is particularly a problem, as some of our dashboards load extremely slowly. I would rather be able to set my default to something that loads quickly so I can get on with other tasks.
I hope Atlassian is not going to take "minimalism" so far that a useful program becomes worthless. I'm mostly a fan of Atlassian products, but sometimes they seem to go for form over function, and business is all about function.
