this jql works too: id=<issue id>

By id i assume the issue key , you can simply do a JQL search .. example: id= ABC-1

You meant the issue key as ID? If that is the case then you can get this using JQL, issueKey = "your issue id" or if you have multiple issues issueKey in (ids...).

If you know the ID and want to browse to the issue you can use the url like this:


This answer no longer appears to work even on Atlassian's instance of JIRA. See [JRA-41720|] for more information.

If searching for multiple id's, perhaps to make a gadget on a dashboard, you can do a JQL Search id in (abc-1,abc-2,abc-3) 

There is no way to have a search box where I paste the issue Key, and it search whole jira? any plugin?

The right top box, Quick Search :)

Yes you are right :)

A much simpler answer is to use Quick Search on the top Nav Bar!


The Quick Search box is located at the top right of your screen. If you type in the key of an issue, you will jump straight to that issue. For example, if you type in 'ABC-107' (or 'abc-107'), and press the Enter you will be redirected to the JIRA issue 'ABC-107'.
