JIRA summary to presearch while typing like Answers does

Hi all,

My users want an interface similar to this site.  So when they are creating a JIRA issue and are adding the summary it will search (just like this site does) for similar issues within the same project (or even better in any project in our JIRA instance).  

I am aware of Confluence Questions, but they want this feature in JIRA for the Summary field and I was wondering if it is possible.

Thanks in advance,

You can also use Similar Issues Finder plugin. It can search while users are typing and it has several other nice features. It has also a cloud version. 




Awesome. I really like it.

A site similar to this can be created using JIRA Service Desk, have a look at it if you have not already?

Yeah thanks, but that is quite expensive for just this one feature.

We do this exact thing today using the Suggestimate plugin.  Works really well and users love it!

Thanks, I wish I could mark both as correct answers, but due to price I believe I will try the Similar Issues Finder plugin below. Thanks though!
