Configuring the look and feel of your Jira applications

As a Jira administrator, you can customize the look and feel of your Jira applications to match your company's environment. 

The logo appears in the top left corner of every Jira application page. The height of the logo image must be constrained to 30 pixels. We also recommend you use an image with a width of 57 pixels.

  1. Choose the Jira icon (, or ) > Jira settings > System
  2. Under USER INTERFACE, select Look and feel.
  3. In the Logo section, upload the image for the logo you want to use for your Jira site. You can also upload from a URL beginning with 'http://' or 'https://' .

How to show your site title

If enabled, your site name will appear next to your logo.

  1. Choose the Jira icon (, or ) > Jira settings > System
  2. Under USER INTERFACE, select Look and feel.
  3. In the Title section, select the Show on dashboard sidebar checkbox to make your instance name appear under your logo in the sidebar.

How to change the favicon

The favicon appears typically to the left of your browser's URL field, and on browser tabs displaying a page on your Jira site. To upload a favicon, make sure it's in PNG format, with dimensions of 32x32 pixels, 71x71 DPI, and with 8-bit color depth.

  1. Choose the Jira icon (, or ) > Jira settings > System
  2. Under USER INTERFACE, select Look and feel.
  3. In the Favicon section, upload the image for the favicon for your JIRA site or upload from a URL beginning with 'http://' or 'https://'.

How to change your Jira site's colors

You can use any of the color options to change the color of a gadget's frame on the Jira dashboard. 

  1. Choose the Jira icon (, or ) > Jira settings > System
  2. Under USER INTERFACE, select Look and feel.
  3. Under the Sidebar color section, select the option you want to change, change the color, and then click Update.

How to change date and time formats

You customize the way times and dates are presented to users throughout the Jira user interface. When specifying dates and times, they should be based on the Java SimpleDateFormat.

  1. Choose the Jira icon (, or ) > Jira settings > System
  2. Under USER INTERFACE, select Look and feel.
  3. In the Date / time formats section, click the value of the element you want to configure, then update the value as necessary.

Issue date/time fields show a relative instead of absolute date/time format. For example, "Yesterday" would appear instead of "20 May 2013 12:00 PM". You can still see the absolute date/time by hovering over the field. The date/time format reverts to absolute after a week.

Here are some further examples of US date/time configurations:
