JIRA system dashboard - Change to "Shared with logged-in users"

Is there any way to chance the System Dashboard to only be shared with logged-in users?

Right now its set to shared with public, and the system dashboard is not listed under System > Shared Dashboard.

Hi everyone! 

There's a way to disable public access in Jira altogether. Please see the workaround in


That workaround is for the Server instances. What about for those of us that use the Cloud instances?

Thank You! This helped

I am not aware about it, but would be strange, because it is a system dashboard, owned by the System and Shared with everyone.

Nevertheless, the shown information depends on the permissions the especific user has. So, because we use the Mode Private, one needs to log in to see any information.

I can see the system dashboard under Global Administration / System / User Interface

Going to:


Still lists the System Dashboard for anonymous users. We do not have any anonymous users and don't see a reason to make this action/page available to Public.

So what I did was modify the ConfigurePortalPages action in the JIRA-INSTALL/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes directory:

<action name="user.ConfigurePortalPages" alias="ConfigurePortalPages" roles-required="use">

In a secure configuration of Jira there shouldn't be any possibility of information disclosure.

Also, I know the modification of these Jira classes is not supported by Atlassian, but I see no other option.


I hope, there will be no negative side effect ;)

We were just made aware of public access dashboards and views being a security risk:

How do we change the view? I do not see a way to change the public access view to any logged in user. Help?

We're in the same boat, JD.  Our VP of InfoSec doesn't want any publicly facing dashboard links, but I have not be able to determine how to change for the System Dashboard.

Hi Mary, can you take a look at my answer above? Thanks. 

Thanks Arbi.  I did take a look at this a while back.
