Auto-check for updates to an open Jira issue?


When I have a Jira issue page open in my browser, and others are working on that issue in parallel, there is no way to see that anything changed, until I explicitly check by reloading the page.

Is there a way (a browser extension, a GreaseMonkey script, ...) to let the browser regularly check whether the issue was updated, and then e.g. show a big 'refresh to see updates' button (perhaps even without reloading the page, using e.g. refreshIssuePage from

(Update: Retagged because I'm interested in a Jira Data Center solution; but don't let that keep anyone from submitting Jira Server or Jira Cloud answers!)

Update: If someone can point me to documentation or examples showing me how to do REST API calls from a Jira issue page, so that I can figure out 'was something changed since the time this page was loaded?', then I could try to write a userscript myself.

Hi @Marnix Klooster

That's not exactly what you're looking for, but this app shows you who else is online looking at the same issue.

I hope that helps.

Looking there, I now found which is exactly what I'd like to have!

Unfortunately that is only for Jira Server, while we are using Jira Data Center.  (I've updated/re-tagged the question based on that.)

Still: Thank you very much!
