Is it somehow possible to embed an iframe into Jira Dashboards?

Hi there

I would like to be able to embed an iframe into a Jira Dashboard. Is that possible with for an example a plugin?

Best regards

You can use the provided Text-Gadget in which you can enter arbitrary HTML.

As this is a potential security risk, it has to be manually enabled by your JIRA Administrator:

Manage-Addons -> System Add-ons -> Expand

Atlassian JIRA - Plugins - Gadgets Plugin

-> Expand the Modules and enable 'Text (text-gadget)'

Excellent, thank you, worked like a charm :)

I can't find this in our JIRA 6.2. I looked everwhere for System Add-ons but couldnt find it

its still there

Manage-Addons -> choose 'System' in the select-box next to the filter-field -> Expand 'Atlassian JIRA - Plugins - Gadgets Plugin', expand its Modules & enable the 'Text (text-gadget)'

Ahaa!! Thanks for the clarification

Here are some screenshots to help others with same question

This option appears to be disables in the later JIRA Version: 6.5-OD-03-002. Any workarounds?

you can enable it just hover over disable and it will bring up an enable button..

only problem is that the text gadgets do not work with a system dashboard... so in essence.. its a pretty much useless gadget as the only time i would use it would be on a system dashboard to display an iframe etc

the text-gadget works fine on the system dashboard, at least on our JIRA 6.2.1 & JIRA 6.4.6 Server Installation. So maybe it only affects the cloud version?

i am using the server version, i believe it does not support HTML on the system dashboard...

for users who are not logged in that is..

HTML also works on the system dashboard. Maybe its just that the text-gadget is not available for anonymous users, can't say exactly. But maybe the 'Introduction-Gadget' can help you in that situation? just be aware that you'll need to set the text/html for it via Administration > System > General Configuration
