Browsing a Project's Summary

  • The Summary page for a project in JIRA shows recent activity in the project, plus a list of versions and issues that are due soon.

    Browsing a project's summary

    To browse a project's summary,

    1. On the top navigation bar, click the white triangle next to Projects. The projects dropdown will display.
      (tick) Tip: You can access your current project directly by simply clicking the Projects link instead of the triangle.
    2. Click the project you wish to browse. If the project is not displayed in the dropdown, click View All Projects, which allows you to view a list of all accessible projects on your JIRA site, and select your project from there.
    3. Ensure that the 'Summary' tab page is displayed (see screenshot below). If not, click the Summary tab on the left to show this page.

      • document updates (from Confluence)
      • code commits (from FishEye)
      • code reviews (from Crucible)
      • builds (from Bamboo)

    The Project Summary page can be easily extended via plugins. For example, you can add a Calendar tab or a Labels tab via the JIRA Calendar plugin and JIRA Labels plugin respectively. Check out the Atlassian Marketplace for more information.
