The Dashboard is the first page you see after logging in to JIRA. Dashboards provide the ability to display summary information about project or issue data through the use of gadgets. The dashboard, below the top navigation bar, can be customized using/ with ‘gadgets’ to display different types of information, depending on your areas of interest.
Your JIRA dashboard page may look different from the one in this screenshot. The links in the navigation bar, however, will be the same.
