Web Clipper for Jira

I'm looking for a gadget or plugin that would allow my team to

  1. select a section of text or region on a page,
  2. prompt with a list of Jira tickets for which they are the assignee or participant,
  3. allow them to select a ticket, then
  4. append the text to that ticket as a comment.

Ideally it should keep the formatting of the original content.

I've done similar things with MacOS by creating a custom service. For example, feed a selection of text into Google translate for a specific language. I also use Evernote's web clipper to clip portions of web pages, windows, etc. into an Evernote note.

I think that this would improve my team's velocity and my organization's IP retention tremendously.

One big source of information is emails. Another is web pages.

I'd prefer to stay away from browser plugins; I don't want to engage in the browser wars. Everyone has their favorite. And I'd be fine with a tool that is MacOS specific.

Using some browser extension seems to be the best options for this.

Yes, but that doesn't fit the requirements that I laid out. One of the principle data sources that I need to accomodate is email from varying clients, not web. Plus I'm not ready to edict which browser(s) my staff may use.

hmm! I got it now.

So using different mail clients also eliminates  possibility of using/creating Jira Plugin.

Only viable thing I see now is creating an os application and using rest api to fetch ticket ids and push comment to those tickets. I don't think any things like this available right now.

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
