add webitem to jira agile board scriptrunner

Trying to add a duplicate button to quick edit an issue when looking at the agile sprint board except any web-item I add shows up as a dropdown instead of a button as shown in the pic below,

For anyone interested in reusing a core part of Jira,

this may be helpful,


First create a custom web section

Next, create a js file so scriptrunner can install it as a web resource,

(function ($) {

JIRA.bind(JIRA.Events.NEW_CONTENT_ADDED, function (event, $context, reason){
var element = document.getElementById('edit-issue-shortcut-button-button');

if (typeof(element) != 'undefined' && element != null) {
element.className = "aui-button ghx-actions-tools js-issueaction issueaction-edit-issue";



As you'll notice I'm simply updating the className of the button we created earlier, I found this by inspecting the edit issue menu item,


Finally, install your web resource,

Now we can see the Edit Issue button on the agile boards
