Taiga App


Taiga is the project management tool for multi-functional agile teams.

Custom configuration

Taiga customizations are placed in two files:

  • conf.json - This contains UI settings. On the Cloudron app, this file is located at /app/data/conf.json.

  • - This contains backend settings. On the Cloudron app, this file is located at /app/data/ The default settings are listed in the file.

These customizations will persist across updates and restarts.

To edit these files use the File manager.
