How to I permanently revert to the old view in Jira?

How can I permanently turn off the "new" view in Jira?  There is a link in the top right which says "See the old view" however it only works for the issue I'm working on.  The new view has nothing of value, there are way too many usability issues and it makes simple tasks more complicated.  Everyone I work with hates it so I'm hoping we're not the only ones and Atlasssian will listen to our feedback.

Hi Chris,

You can disable the new issue view for now by going to your Profile picture > Personal settings > New Jira issue view for software projects and disable the new view.

Note that it will only disable for classic projects. Business and Next-Gen projects will still show the new issue view.


I created a ticket to allow us to permanently keep the old view. Please vote on it.

I hope that JIRA lets us keep the old JIRA view!!

I've been having the same issue with the new view. It's extremely confusing and hard to see. 

Thanks. It will fix many bugs on our side.

I hope it all get fixed before we cannot go back anymore.
