In jira how open weblink in a new tab or new window automatically.

Hi Guys,

Whenever we add a weblink to the jira issue and clicked in the view screen of the issue, it is opened in the current window 

But  required is when we  click, the web link should be opened in new tab or new window .

Do CTRL+Click (windows)

command+click mac.


This is manually we are opening in new tab

Am asking automatically when clicks the link in jira it can open in new tab currently it is opening in the same  tab.

I understood, but there's no way to change this.

Hello Josh,

It is possible we have  to add the Jquery to announcement banner

i added the following query

and am able to get the weblink  in a new window.

jQuery(document).ready(function() {
jQuery(".link-title").attr("target", "_blank");
