JIRA quick search suggestion and autocomplete doesn't works

Hi all, 

I got a question for you. 

We've just installed JIRA Server hosted by us and I am gonna check some features, but I encountered one problem about quick search suggestions. 

When I enter some words or part of an issueKey search engine doesn't show drop-down suggestions. Could you help me to find some solution about it?

The image attached is a reference about what I talking about. I don't see that dropdown.

Is there some system plugin disabled?

Thanks in advance

Marco, if you "just installed JIRA server", I would assume there are very few issues in the database. If that's correct, try entering some issues first, then retry some simple searches.

Hi Jeff, 

thanks for the reply. 

Right now, I got 150 issues in JIRA e the quick search suggestions don't happen. I attach a screenshot about my search fields. Keep your attention on the gray coloring of the search field (seems that the search engine suggestion is disabled).  

Do you have any other idea?

Thanks a loCattura.JPG

Hi Marco,

I have the same issue. Could you solve in the end?



Now I see, that the server version doesn't have this feature :(


Hi Robert, 

thanks a lot for your suggestion. 

I will wait the issue will be developed from Atlassian.
