How to post update in jira for a group of users' generic dashboard?

Hi,

I am new in jira. Could any one tell me how to post a update in jira for specific users and only they can see the update in their generic dashboard?

Thanks

What do you mean by "update"?

I want to post an announcement in jira for specific user group. If I post the announcement it will be available for all users. But I want it for specific user group who will see the update in their dashboard

Thanks

Ah, ok. I can't think of any proven way to do that, but I suspect you could look into

  1. Adding javascript to the announcement banner that says "if user in group X, then show this bit"
  2. Using the text gadget on the default dashboard to do the same
  3. (Ugly, but needs no code) Add a project gadget, showing the brief view of a brand new project. Configure the project so that
    1. Only that group can browse it
    2. The name of the project is the message you want to publish
    3. No-one can create issues in it

Hi Nic,
Thank for your reply. As we are in the live we have no chance to test it. Is there any proven way to do this?

Thanks
Anam
