Card Layout: Issue Name Rather Than Issue ID?

Hello! When you go to Card Layout and add Linked Issues.. it shows the Issue's ID that is linked. I want to know is it possible to show the Summary of the Issue on the card as opposed to the ID?

I think it's more efficient for developers to see the name of the issue (summary) rather than the Issue ID?


Please advise.

Hi Cierra,

  • Are you on Cloud or Server?

When I create a Linked issue I am able to see the Issue Summary in Cloud and Server without any changes:

Please take a Screenshot of what you're seeing and we'll go from there.



I am using Server.. currently when I view my issues, as you can see the linked issue only shows the Issue ID (MFA-24) and not the summary of the ticketCapture.PNG

Hi Cierra,

What is the issue type of the linked issue (MFA-24)?  I noticed that if the linked issue is an Epic it doesn't show the Summary:

Please confirm the linked issue type and we'll go from there.



Hello! MFA-24 is a 'User Story' issue type.

@Branden McElveen hello! Are you able to advise?
