What is the "Default" board for projects that have multiple boards? Edited

I've created a board that includes all of my teams bugs in all projects. Unfortunately now that board is the default board whenever you open a project. It would be fine if the individual projects didn't even have the board in them, but if they must I don't want it to be the default board when the project is opened.

I've tried removing the projects access from them by removing the project from board->configure->filter->shares.

Hi Justin,

When a project has multiple boards there is no default board. The one displayed is the one that was last accessed. I found this JIRA ticket which is a request to configure a default board to show for a project.  You can vote on the request if you'd like (I did! :-))


Hope it helps,



Thank you for taking the time to inform me! I've voted : )
