Jira "developers" have once again re-mangled the UI, such that there's no longer a title bar. However, your illustrious documentation continues to detail how to perform a Quick Search by using the now non-existent title bar. All I want to do is to search for a specific issue by it's number. Using the idiotic search icon on the left side of the screen performs a wildly unpredictable and random search across all projects, so this is completely useless.
i just tried to do a quick search on my instance using a issue key and it worked.
here is a reference for quick search
the section you want to checkout is named
No, the search function on the sidebar will search across the entire Jira universe, not within the selected project and certainly not for issues alone.
In fact, this search function will take me to completely unrelated pages within a different project. If I navigate back from the spurious search results and make the exact same search again, I will be taken to a different set of invalid results, or to a page indicating that the search item couldn't be found.
None of this is helpful. I simply want to search for a specific issue by number within the currently selected project. I would think that this is a common and useful feature requirement, but Jira design celebrates obscurity and bloat over utility. :(
