That's doable just with the help of a plugin.

Dashboard Utilities looks to be a promising one for your needs, as it provides you with Clone Dashboard capability.

While ScriptRunner counts with a built-in script to copy a dashboard from another project, it can do so just on project creation and requires the underlying filter names to be prefixed with the project key.

That said, Dashboard utilities seems to be the plugin you need.

Of course, I'm assuming you know JIRA's built-in 'Copy Dashboard' option, and that you need each of those 50 dashboard to show different data.

By the way, if that's the case, there's also a workaround for making the very same dashboard capable of showing different data dynamically, which wouldn't require a plugin, but just some additional configuration.

Thanks Ignacio for the answers. we tried to use Dashboard utilities but it says it does not support JIRA Versions more than 7.3.8 , but some how managed to installed it and tried to clone the dashboard but it didnt work out after cloning it throws an error .

 Error below


Create new dashboard by clone with name Copy_Amazon1Q2017 ERROR


Error while trying to create a dashboard Copy_Amazon1Q2017 based on the dashboard Amazon1Q2017

Incompatible add-ons can often be loaded into a system, but they're flagged incompatible for a reason - they usually don't work.

There's no "fix" for this, you need to get a new one from the vendor, one that is compatible.

Hi Nic,


yeah incompatible was working in one of our lower environment and we are able to clone the dashboards successfully , but if we use the same plugin in Production we are not able to clone .


This is one weird issue we are facing.. and still in lower environment cloning works.


Any idea where do i find the error logs?

Errors will be in the application log, atlassian-jira.log, but they won't help much, you need to get a new one from the vendor, one that is compatible.

Unfortunately, if Dashboard Utilities plugin is installed in unsupported JIRA versions, errors are expected to be thrown.

I will create an article soon to properly explain the available workaround for creating a dashboard configured in such a way that it could be used by your 50 projects, each with the data that are relevant to them, and I'll share here the URL in this question once it's available.
