JIRA option for default kanban board per project?

Is there a option/config in JIRA to set a default kanban board per project? At the moment i use a kanban project board and a global kanban board for all the projects. The problem is that when i switch between projects JIRA always use the global default board. And then i have to switch manually between the kanban boards. What i would like is an option in the project to say for this project this kanban board is my default.

I have the same problem. I have a board (Scrum) where I show two different projects (A & B) and then I have a board (Kanban) that only shows one of these projects (A). When I go into project A it is showing the Scrum board with both project A & B, which is quite annoying as the users her should only see the project A board.

Here is a workaround to disable your global Kanban in a project view.

1 Create a filter for all projects (leave it as "Project: All")

2 Create a Kanban board from "Board from an existing Saved Filter", choose the filter created on step1

Then this global Kanban will not be shown in "BOARDS IN DIESEM PROJEKT" (BOARDS IN THIS PROJECT)

Same question/problem. This is annoying!
