mention an issue in a comment : auto complete and full text rendering ?


We writing in a comment, you can mention an ISSUE-XXX and it is be default rendered as a link.


  • you should know which exact issue ID you want to refer to before. Why wouldn't it be possible to have  an auto-complete feature like with '@' mentioning ?
  • the issue is renderer as ISSUE-XXX rather as a link displaying "ISSUE-XXX : there is a an issue with X bla bla"

Is there something to do that ?

Hi Martin,

It depends on the renderer you configured for comments. Check comment renderer in your JIRA instance. It should be Wiki-Style renderer inorder to show issuekey with hyperlinks.

Hope this helps!! 

Hi, I forgot to mention that indeed ISSUE-XXX renders as link, but my point is how to change the way it's rendered and secondly how to do auto-complete while typing in a comment which would be very useful.

If you want to render Issue key with summary next to it you should write your own plugin that extends wiki style renderer. As far as I know there is no plugin with this capability.

Thanks, and about issue auto-search when writing ? (like when mentioning someone with @ ?)

Do I need to write some java stuff to change the rendering of issues ?

Yes, you'd need to write a new chunk of editor to get auto-search.
