Showing clones at top of an issue

Clones are shown in the links section if you clone an issue or mark an existing issue as a clone. But the links section is moved down when there are a lot of attachments, e.g. screenshots. So if you open an issue you don't instantly see if the issue has clones.

Is it possible to move the links section above the attachments? Is there some other way to show the cloned issues directly at the top of an issue, so you can see the clones on first sight when opening an issue?

Hi Simon,

thanks for the advice, but we usually don't edit the source files or add additional JavaScript, because we don't want to get any issues when upgrading JIRA to a newer version.

I hoped for some kind of simple solution, but JIRA Support also told me that there is currently no interface for changing the layout. I did just want to be sure, that I am not missing any simple configuration.

Simply hiding description and attachments section will be the current workaround.



Hi Falk,

This isn't available in JIRA by default, but it could be pretty easy to accomplish with some custom JavaScript embedded on the page. We have an article explaining how to get JavaScript on a page here:

Once you have the JavaScript on the page, it is a matter of moving the link section to the top of the issue data.

Friday Fun: What's your favourite beer/drink

As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
