JIRA is now available as three separate applications, JIRA Software, JIRA Service Desk, and JIRA Core. For more information on administering these applications, refer to the Administering JIRA Applications documentation.

Adding the Bamboo Plans Gadget

The Bamboo Plans gadget displays a list of all plans on a particular Bamboo server and each plan's current status.

What does it look like?

The Bamboo Plans gadget should appear as follows on the dashboard:

Your JIRA administrator must have configured the Bamboo plugin on your JIRA server (), if you want to add the Bamboo Plans gadget to your dashboard. If you have added multiple Bamboo servers in JIRA there will be one Bamboo Plans gadget available per server, e.g. 'Bamboo Plans Gadget from', 'Bamboo Plans Gadget from', etc. ()

Adding the 'Bamboo Plans ' gadget to your Dashboard

  1. Go to your JIRA dashboard and click 'Add Gadget'.
  2. The 'Gadget Directory' will appear. Locate the 'Bamboo Plans' gadget and click the 'Add it Now' button. Then click the 'Finished' button at the bottom of the Gadget Directory. The 'Bamboo Plans' gadget will appear on your dashboard as follows, ready for you to configure.
  3. Click the arrow in the top right corner of the gadget to open the configuration menu and click 'Edit'. Configure the Bamboo information to be displayed on your gadget as follows:
    • 'Select Plans' — Select the Bamboo plan which you would displayed on your gadget.
    • 'Refresh Interval' — Select how often you would like the information on the gadget to update.
  4. Click the 'Save' button.

To move the gadget to a different position on the dashboard, simply drag-and-drop. You can also change the look and behavior of the gadget.

Authorising JIRA to Display Bamboo Gadgets

When you add this gadget to your JIRA dashboard, you may see a message similar to this:

The website (container) you have placed this gadget on is unauthorised. Please contact your system administator to have it approved.

To fix this problem, you will need to configure your Bamboo site to allow JIRA to draw information from it via gadgets on the JIRA dashboard. To do this, your JIRA administrator first needs to define your JIRA site as an OAuth consumer in Bamboo. You will then be required to perform a once-off authentication before your gadget will display correctly.

    Are there any plans on allowing Bamboo Gadgets to be added to the JIRA dashboard for OnDemand customers?

      Hi there,

      The same thing happened to my test OnDemand site. We managed to solve the issue on my site by disabling and re-enabling JIRA Bamboo Plugin. To locate this plugin, go to the Admin console of JIRA, and then Plugins > Manage Plugins. It's one of the system plugins. Did this happen after this Monday's upgrade? – Regards, Lingbo

        I don't have this option. There is no way for me to disable this system plugin, only "configure" it.
