Search on Summary during Issue Creation


One of my team members has asked for some functionality that he had in JIRA at another company.

He said that when he used to create tickets as he typed in the summary field it would show tickets that already had that text in their summary.

Does anyone know how that functionality is accomplished?  Is it a plugin?

Suggestimate provides that functionality. I have also seen people mimic this by modifying some core files.

We do that here with a Confluence knowledge base linked to a JIRA Service Desk. The summary is matched against Confluence pages linked to that particular service desk through a selection of labels.

It's pretty nifty, but it does require creating Troubleshooting pages for every ticket. Service Desk makes it easy to convert a ticket into a Confluence page though.

Suggestimate would work but it is a bit pricey for that functionality.

I found issuepicker, which is free, but I wonder if it has been abandoned by the developer.  It was updated late last year for 6.3 but not since.
