link to show all shared dashboards on Jira

We have a number of managers who simply want to log in every now and again and look at a dashboard. They want a list of dashboards automatically showing up so they can choose to see an Overview, or project specific dashboards. I shouldn't need to sit with each of these managers and train them in finding dashboards.

I can put a link in the System Dashboard that takes people to the search page, but I want a link that automatically shows all shared dashboards that they are allowed to see (permissions). Is there some secret way to do this? or am I barking up the wrong tree here and there is an easier\better way to show shared dashboards?

We have docs for how to search for Dashboards which you can share with your managers:



Thanks Boris. "Popular" may not do it. These are managers who will only jump on to JIRA before a board meeting or some other time, not every day, so teaching them will be "In Progress" forever.

I've been tasked with creating a number of Dashboards for the different projects that all users can see and use depending on their permissions so a link to a full search would be best and they can "favourite" the ones they like.

I may have to take up another line in the "Introduction" dashboard to press "Search" without entering anything else.

Another option would be to write a custom plugin which would provide this functionality. Not sure what kind of resources you have, and how big of a problem this is, but I just wanted to make you aware of it.
