When I go into the history of an issue to find out which parent it had previously I can only find the issue ID. This is the only place I see the issue ID and I'm not sure how to use it.
It would be much more handy for me to have the issue key instead.
Is it possible to change the settings of our Jira instance or project to show the issue key instead of the issue ID?
Hi @Max Ålander ,
welcome to the Atlassian community!
Please take a look to the following thread https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-Software-questions/Parents-ticket-in-history-only-showing-ID-Can-I-get-more-info/qaq-p/1853649
There's no way to change the display,
The history is recording a minimum - the unique immutable id of an issue. It might actually not want to be presenting the issue keys as they could be misleading or useless.
Imagine you've got these two linked:
Now you delete ABC-123 and move DEF to XYZ-567
What would your history display? The deleted one doesn't have a key, so I'd fall back on the issue id with "deleted" on it because you need something for auditors, but on the move, do you display the current ID, or what it was when you linked them?
Hi @Max Ålander ,
Welcome to the community,
Could you please provide further details like are you moving sub-task of task (standard issue type) to other task or are you referring moving task from epic to other epic.
But in both case, it is reflecting issue key only, please mention your scenario.
