Is it possible to keep the same jira number after re-assigning the same jira ticket to a different project or a new project. If yes How? the Jira ticket does not change within the same project but if i reassign to a different project , the Jira number changes
How should this be possible?
If the number is already taken in the new project there is no way to assign it to the moved issue - otherwise two issues would have the same number. If you keep the key-number combination there is no way to tell the issue belongs to another project now...
Thanks Thomas, Let me try and explain my question. Example, My project is called A, i create an issue, and assigne it some one within my Project, (Jira Ticket will be e.g Jira 10), Then i think of reassigning the same issue to a different Project which is B, Definately the jira number will change, but what i want is to keep the same Jira number (jira 10) for tracking purpose. How do i do this or its not possibly, in Jira V 5.1
The problem in that scenario remains uniqueness. You've got issues AA-10 and BB-10, if you try to move AA-10 into project BB, then you simply can't keep the number, it's not possible.
As Thomas says though, http://myjira/AA-10 will redirect your users to the correct place after the move.
