Hi Detlef,

The link below provides the steps to disable onboarding on JIRA 6.4.1 and later:



Thanks, that works well for me.

As a additional feature, it would be great if a user could skip the onboarding process.

That's naming ... i suppose 90% google for "Quick tour" or "Welcome Page"

Hi Tailor,

I'm using a server installation (6.4.1).

Yesterday I already tried to disable the “JIRA Welcome Plugin” (1.2.1) — However, new users see the “Quick Tour” and also uploading a avatar.

Cheers, Detlef

Sorry, my mistake. Try the JIRA Onboarding plugin.


Ah! This is the name of the add-on. :-) It's a pity that disabling the add-on or some of the modules will not work.

Hi Detlef.

If you are using JIRA Server you can just disable the JIRA Welcome plugin. If you are using a JIRA Cloud instance, you need to contact support to have the plugin disabled.
