And admin might have changed the owner of the dashboard. As long as you are the owner, you should be able to add the gadgets.

ok let me check and come back, the last time when I checked, I was the owner of the dashboard

Hi, I am the owner of the Dashboard, But I am not able to add Gadgets to it. Why ?

Are you not seeing the "Add Gadgets" option itself? Or are you seeing some errors in the logs?

No I am not able to see the add Gadgets Option itself, ok let me check the logs too.Thanks!

If I have something in the logs, will let you know.


I am also facing the same issue as above. I am the owner of the dashboard and have added only 6 gadgets and i am trying to add another gadget to my dashboard and not able to find the "add gadget" button.

Not sure what i am missing. When i try to create a new dashboard at that point of time it displays the add gadget button.

Please look into it and suggest ? 

Any news on this issue? As I am experiencing the same issue. I am owner of the dashboard and I am JIRA admin. But I don't see this button at all.

Did you check the login ? 

It might be possible that you might have logged in with a different profile, instead of yours ?


The account are managed by LDAP, so I only have one account and profile.

Is there any solution for this problem? I am stuck here as well. Any solution is very appreciated.

1. login as an administration>system

2. under User interface >system dashboard

3.Add Gadget
