Default tabs for JIRA view screen

Is it possible to set a default Details tab for a view screen?

When navigating between issues, the last viewed tab is remembered.

Is there an option/preference to default a tab for the View Screen?

It currently defaults to the first tab.


I can't see anything on JAC >>.

Hi Jimmy,

I don't think we have option to set default Screen tab in JIRA. You are right First tab is the only default tab.

FYI, last view tab in issue section is remembered through JIRA Cookies, you can refer below doc for more info -


Thanks. Since it's sticky per user, I figured there would be some use of cookies.
