breadcrumb navigation

Hi, I'm trying to figure out if it's possible to modify the way breadcrumb navigation works in JIRA. 

By default, the issue type hiearchy in the breadcrumb navigatio is like this:

  • Epic A / User stories A1, A2, A3 / Tasks A1.1, A2,2

What I need to able to do is to change the breadcrumbs to achieve something like this:

  • Epic A / User story A2 / Task B3

Has anyone had the same problem? And if so, how did you solve this? Any inputs greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Noone here ever needed to modify the breadcrumb navigation in JIRA...? (surprised)

Could you explain what you mean by breadcrumb navigation?  I ask because I don't recognise what you're describing, so I'm wondering what I'm missing (I'm probably blinded by familiarity)

Ah, ok, it's the "Epic /  Story A1, A2 / Tasks A1, A2" bit that confused me.  You simply don't get that display at all - the breadcrumbs you have pointed to are Project: Current project / Current issue - no multiples, not Epics.

You can't change that display. 

But, it does support Epics - an issue with an Epic shows Project: Current project / Epic issue / Current issue

This is in the new issue view on Cloud though, which you may not yet have.

thanks for your time, @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ ! So that basically means that if I want to change the display, this would require custom development, did I get that correctly?

Yes, that's correct.  You would need to hack the code that is showing the breadcrumbs.  This is not possible on Cloud systems, you've no access to the code.

Apparently, it is still not possible!
