If you don’t know how to create a Jira dashboard in less than a minute, check this post out!

The main components of a dashboard are the gadgets, which are basically the elements that display the information you need, in the format you want.

Lights on? or Lights off? Ronin Dashboards offers both a light and dark theme depending on your preference. Let’s be honest, dark mode just looks super amazing. While most products are going for that similar bland white look, the dark mode does offer something different that feels mysterious and If you need a powerful and a cool looking custom dashboard then Dashboard Hub is the one for you.

Awesome Atlassian Integrations

Gadgets are small bits of a dashboard that easily display data. They are designed to get specific data to a specific source. Ronin Dashboards can integrate with the following Atlassian platforms: Jira Software, Service Management, Confluence, Insight, Statuspage, Opsgenie, Bitbucket, and the Atlassian Marketplace

Using the Dashboard Hub Connector App you can easily and securely retrieve information from some Atlassian cloud products like Jira (Core, Software, Service Management), Confluence, and Bitbucket (which includes Pipelines). You don’t need the Connector App to use Dashboard Hub but if you want to pull data from the other apps, then you need to install it. This is needed to bridge data from other Atlassian products, keeping users and security privileges configured on every instance. This means that users can access data from other Atlassian cloud products only if their Atlassian accounts have the right and sufficient privileges.
