Your JIRA user profile is where you specify your JIRA settings (e.g. your email address, and the format in which you would like to receive email notifications). It also contains useful links to a number of personalised reports.

To view your JIRA user profile:

  • Click your user name at the top-right of the page and the 'Summary' tab page of your 'User Profile' will be displayed:


The 'Summary' tab page shows your personal details registered in JIRA, your personal JIRA preferences, the number of open issues assigned to you by project and a list of your recent activity.

  • On the 'Summary' tab page, you can do the following:

    • In the 'Details' section, clicking the edit icon at the top-right, opens the 'Edit Profile' dialog box and allows you to edit the following details:
      • 'Full Name' (your display-name – that is, the name by which you are known in JIRA).
      • 'Email' (the email address to which your JIRA notifications will be sent).
      • Click the 'Update' button to save your changes.
      • Click the 'Change Password' link to change your JIRA password.

    • In the 'Preferences' section, clicking the edit icon at the top-right, opens the 'Updated User Preferences' dialog box and allows you to edit the following details:
      • 'Page Size' – The number of issues displayed on each Issue Navigator page. This field is mandatory and the default value is 50.
      • 'Email type' – The format (text or HTML) in which JIRA sends its outgoing email notifications.
      • 'Language' – Your preferred language.
      • 'Own Changes' – Choose between making JIRA send you email notifications about issue updates made by either both you and other people ('Notify me') or other people only (i.e. 'Do not notify me').
      • 'Filter and dashboard sharing' – Choose between making JIRA share dashboards and filters with all other users by default upon creation ('Public') or restrict
        dashboards and filters to your viewing only by default upon creation ('Private').
      • Click the 'Update' button to save your changes.

    • In the 'Assigned Open Issues per project' section, you can do the following:
    • In the 'Activity Stream' on the right, click any item to jump to an issue you have recently been involved with.

    • Click the 'Filters' menu in the top right to open it. From this menu you can:
      • Click 'Assigned' to list all issues that are assigned to you, irrespective of their current status.
      • Click 'Assigned & Open' to list the issues that are assigned to you and are unresolved.
      • Click 'Assigned & In Progress' to list the issues that are assigned to you and whose current status is 'In Progress'.
      • Click 'Reported' to list the issues that were created by you, irrespective of their current status.
      • Click 'Reported & Open' to list the issues that were created by you and are unresolved.
      • Click 'Voted' to view the list of issues for which you have voted, irrespective of their current status.
      • Click 'Voted & Open' to view the list of issues for which you have voted and are unresolved.
      • Click 'Watched' to view the list of issues that you are watching, irrespective of their current status.
      • Click 'Watched & Open' to view the list of issues that you are watching and are unresolved.

The 'Roadmap' tab page shows your 'Personal Road Map' report, which provides quick access to work assigned to you across all projects.

  • On the 'Roadmap' tab page, you can do the following:
    • In the 'Change Project' field, select a project to show a personal road map report for work assigned to you for that project. This is similar in functionality to browsing a project's roadmap, although the personal road map shows only issues assigned to you.
    • Click the 'View global road map' link to show all work required for that project.

The 'Activity' tab page provides a full-page, wider view of the 'Activity Stream' on the 'Summary' tab page.

The 'Tools' menu provides access to additional functions, which are available from any tab page in your JIRA user profile.

  • Click the 'Tools' menu in the top right to open it. From this menu you can:
