How to get an alternative jira id issue?

Hi All,

Does anyone knows how (if possible at all) to create a link to an issue in jira that soesn't include the real issue id? I dont want to have the project key inside the link text.

Hi Eitan,

there is no alternative Jira issue id without the project key. The project key with the sequential number is the main part of every URL that links to the issue.

Even if you could create such a link, anyone clicking on the link would then see the project's key in Jira.

What is the purpose of your question? Maybe there's another solution for your problem.
