Support for RTL text directions in JIRA


We are working with Jira 5.2.8, we have problem with displaying Hebrew text in issues, a spcially when there is a mix of Hebrew and English text.

Is there any solution for this problem?

Hi Slava,

I'm sorry to say that at this point JIRA doesn't support RTL text, although we do have an open improveemnt request for this so I would recommend that you watch/vote/comment on that issue to make our developers aware of your needs and to encourage them to prioritise its implementation:

All the best,

2014 to 2021 and this important feature is not supported! 

its a shame you won't fix it.

hey guys,

we have problems for writing right to left.

Please do something, it wouldn't take much time from you !

Thanks in Advance 

It works!

Works! Thanks!

Hey All

Try this one extension for chrome,

It's working well for us over here.

This one does not work. Try the one @Etty Ben Shir mentions below:
It works!

Still, not having RTL should be basic. Please add it!

We also have this problem, I can not understand why they ignore such a large group of potential users who are giving up and seeking other platforms... its a shame

Try installing this addon

Thought this is an old issue I thought it is a good idea to advertise my chrome plugin that fixes rtl jira issues

Here it is
