Dashboard Item

Dashboard items allow add-on to display a summary information data on the dashboard. Each dashboard-item can be configured to display information relevant to a particular user.

Example

For a full add-on example, see dashboard item example add-on.

{
  "jiraDashboardItems": [
    {
      "description": {
        "value": "Dashboard item description"
      },
      "url": "/dashboard-item-test?dashboardItemId={dashboardItem.id}&dashboardId={dashboard.id}&view={dashboardItem.viewType}",
      "configurable": true,
      "thumbnailUrl": "atlassian-icon-16.png",
      "name": {
        "value": "Dashboard item title"
      },
      "key": "dashboard-item-key"

Properties

key

Type
string
Required
Yes
Description

A key to identify this module.

This key must be unique relative to the add on, with the exception of Confluence macros: Their keys need to be globally unique.

Keys must only contain alphanumeric characters and dashes.

The key is used to generate the url to your add-on's module. The url is generated as a combination of your add-on key and module key. For example, an add-on which looks like:

{
    "key": "my-addon",
    "modules": {
        "configurePage": {
            "key": "configure-me",
        }
    }
}

Will have a configuration page module with a URL of /plugins/servlet/ac/my-addon/configure-me.

conditions

Description

Conditions can be added to display only when all the given conditions are true.

configurable

Type
boolean
Defaults to
false
Description

Specify if the dashboard-item is configurable or not. Configurable dashboard items should render configuration view if there is no configuration stored for the dashboard item. Dashboard item properties can be used for configuration storage.

In addition, configurable dashboard items should register a javascript callback for edit click.

 AP.require(['jira'], function (jira) {
    jira.DashboardItem.onDashboardItemEdit(function() {
       // render dashboard item configuration now
    });
 });

It is a common case to give users ability to set the name of the dashboard item. This can be achieved with a following JS code:

 AP.require(['jira'], function(jira) {
    jira.setDashboardItemTitle("Setting title works");
 });
