Autocomplete-min.js not address by workaround instructions

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Advanced Search for issues Autocomplete doesn't submit suggestion by a click with latest Chrome

This patch workaround didn't work for us... I'm wondering if it's because the AutoComplete-min.js wasn't replaced.

Are the instructions complete?

The code is supposed to remove

.bind("mousedown", function(e) {

Is that what you have in your file?

Actually, the file posted adds the code snippet you included. The diff in the kb article was backwards.

As suspected, the -min file also needs to be updated.

I'm not sure if it's supposed to be created/refreshed automatically and that's not happening. (perhaps deleting -min would cause it to be recreated).

But I manually updated the -min file to apply the same change as on the full file and after JIRA restart, the issue is fixed correctly.

Whoops! I stand corrected. Lol. Read it the wrong way.

Hi Peter/Timothy,

I tried the workaround from the KB and it didn't work. Could you please let me know how to fix it?


The patch/workaround is incomplete.

The AutoComplete.js file provided doesn't fully address the issue.

Another file needs to be updated/replaced. The AutComplete-min.js

You can do that by:

  1. Shutdown JIRA
  2. Copy existing $JIRA_INSTALL/atlassian-jira/includes/jira/autocomplete/AutoComplete-min.js to AutoComplete-min.js.original

  3. Edit $JIRA_INSTALL/atlassian-jira/includes/jira/autocomplete/AutoComplete-min.js and perform the following search and replace function:
    Search for:


    Replace with

    Save the file
  4. Start JIRA

This will apply the same changes that are present in the AutoComplete.js file.

Thanks @Peter-Dave Sheehan - This has help us resolve the issue. Thankyou so much you saved my day smile
