Go directly to the JIRA issue screen when clicking the issue link in a board?

Hi!

To get to the JIRA issue screen for a full issue view from a board, I need to click the card to get Issue detail View and then click the issue number in the upper part of the Issue detail view. Is it possible to shortcut this in any way, to go directly to the JIRA issue screen from the board?

Since clicking anywhere on the card in the board will open the Issue detail view, wouldn't make sense to go directly to the JIRA issue screen when clicking the actual issue key/link on the card, see picture below?

It is designed that way. There is an opened "Suggestion" about it and it is still OPEN https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/GHS-11160

A workaround is to not to click the issue number. You can either:

  • Right Click > Open in a new Tab
  • Hold CTRL + Center Click (Mouse Wheel Button)

Thanks for the suggestion! I understand it's designed this way. Even though it is a very small issue I still think it would make sense to give the option to directly open the issue screen.

Agreed. Go and vote for the issue and let the Atlassians know there are more people who wants this feature :)

Yes, I would like to see this functionality also.
