      Description

      Jenkins recently changed the name of the root breadbrumb from "Jenkins" to "Dashboard"

      but this is confusing. whilst the root view may be a dashboard, it is also not the only dashboard. all the views / folders are really dashboards and there is nothing special about the root page that means it should be called the Dashboard (additionally plugins may create a special views that users also refer to as a dashboard).

      Another issue is context menus here apply to Jenkins instance not a "dashboard" - the drop downs for "Manage Jenkins" (or other actions applicable to Jenkins) on a "Dashboard" is just weird.

      the name should be reverted or changed to something that is not confusing

             whilst the root view may be a dashboard, it is also not the only dashboard

            It is referenced as such in numerous sidepanel links labeled "Back to Dashboard", so in that respect it makes sense (or is at least consistent with labels that have been used for a decade or so).

            When this change was proposed, we also considered "home". Would that one alleviate your concerns, James Nord?

            Thinking out loud, regarding your second point (that this item actually refers to the Jenkins instance, from the context menus perspective), how about using "Instance" or more in our own terminology, "Controller"?

            This would actually also work for: https://issues.jenkins.io/browse/JENKINS-63699. Renaming "Manage Jenkins" to "Manage Instance" or "Manage Controller".

            You know "Jenkins" kinda works.. clicking on it takes you back and it is a breadcrumb, and the context menu works...
            Or you know, do not put text there but put a Jenkins Image and then we do not have any of this "naming is hard" and the alt-text can be "Jenkins" which it was before.
