If you give the group anyone permission to browse the project and set the share to everyone on the dashboard and any filters that is being used by the gadgets you will be able to share dashboards/wallboards without being logged in to JIRA.

Hi Mikael, is this still a working solution. I have followed the steps above but I am still unable to view without being logged in. Could you also please give further details on 'filters being used by the gadget'. I don't believe I have any, as I am wanting to share my Kanban board. But maybe this is the problem.

Mikael Sandberg Community Leader Jul 19, 2018

@Kirk Stevens yes, this should still be a working solution, except if you are trying to use iframes to display Jira content (within an external dashboard). iframe support was removed in an early version of Jira 7. Because of the iframe issue we are no longer using wallboards, instead we extract the information we need via the REST API and create our own charts from it.

Almost every gadget on a dashboard is using a predefined filter and that filter has to be shared with everyone or the gadget will not work. The same applies to Kanban/Scrum boards, they use filters too.

I would like clarification on "If you give the group anyone permission to browse"


  1. is there a group called anyone?  I don't see that group.
  2. does browse mean the same thing as view


I am writing this in March 2019 - I created a wallboard showing several bamboo build plans.  I want to give anonymous access to this wallboard.

Looks like lots of folks want this ability - 

Mikael Sandberg Community Leader Mar 14, 2019

@Ann Millikin Yes, there is a group called Anyone when you change your permission scheme, and browse is Browse Projects

Hi Amit

Make your JIRA "public" mode - and then add permission constraints for the rest of your users (or groups).

See this:

then here for the jira users/groups you want to provide login constraints to:

Hope that helps.

hmm. this doesn't seem to work for me. Maybe I'm missing something? When I set "public" mode and share a Dashboard with "everyone", I was expecting an anonymous user to be able to select that dashboard from the dashboard-dropdown.

I'm having the same issue.

So there's no way to restrict permissions to only view one or two dashboards without giving "browse projects" to anonymous users?

That seems completely insane. That can't be correct.

The best way to think of this is that the Gadgets render Content based on permissions of the user viewing the dashboard, if the user does not have permissions to view the content the gadget refuses to render to protect the data from being viewed.

I have a dashboard that I've configured to be visible to people who are not logged in.  The dashboard has three widgets - closed vs. open, burndown, and days left in sprint.  The board is viewable, but only the closed vs. open widget displays to non-logged in users.  I realize the other two widgets are dependent on the board (e.g. sprint board) permission, which is set to everyone, and it's filter is set to everyone.  So, I'm stumped as to why those widgets don't display to non-logged in users.  Any suggestions?

Mitchel Meijer Jul 29, 2017

I have the exact same problem! Gadget/widgets with a filter, where the permission of the filter is set to Public, are shown in a public dashboard. But no matter what I try, the Burndown or other sprint related gadget/widgets are not shown to public users. 

Hope someone has an anwser.
