I am working with a team to transition them from Trello to using Jira Cloud with a Kanban board. They are used to seeing issue details in a modal dialog in Trello, rather than in a sidebar as Jira does in the backlog and board views. The modal dialog in Trello had more screen real estate to show everything, and coming from this, the Jira sidebar seems very compressed with low visibility of fields.
Is there any setting (or plugin?) that allows the sidebar issue detail view to be changed to a modal dialog/popup instead?
This feature is currently available on boards for Jira Core (Business project types).
The good news is that we are also working on rolling this out to all Software Kanban and Scrum boards over the coming months.
It's unfortunately is not available to everyone yet, but stay tuned — it should be coming to all Software project boards soon.
You can read more about the new design at https://confluence.atlassian.com/jiracorecloud/the-new-jira-issue-view-938040503.html.
In old Jira (version 4.x) issue detailed view was in modal dialog if you opened via greenhopper's board.
But in newer Jira this was moved to the sidebar.
It would be useful to set some checkbox in board's settings so every user can decide if wish modal dialog or sidebar. On small screens sidebar is totally unusable.
