Why is the issue key not in the "Group by Field" list?

For some timesheet reports, I want to see total hours per issue from all developers on top of the individual timesheets. I can achieve what I want by selecting "Group by Fields" = Summary, but this makes the timesheets too wide for printing. I see no reason why the issue key should not be in the list...

Hi Einar,

To answer the question, Issue Key is not returned as a field by API. Note, you can not also search by key in simple mode in Issue Navigator, only in Advanced mode with JQL.

But I think it should be possible to add this, please replicate your request here for better tracking.

Thank you.
