Redirect Jira issues URLs to Mac OS App

Hello guys, 

Currently starting to use the Application after the OS update to Catalina. 

Is there a way that I can redirect the Jira issue links to open in the Mac App instead of browser?

Thanks a lot,

Hi Guille,

If you open a Jira page (e.g. an issue) in Safari after you installed the app, you should see a banner at the top of the website asking if the OS should open Jira links in the app rather than the browser. The banner does not show up in Chrome or any other browser but it only needs to be confirmed once.

I hope this helps.



This is not working for me.  I am not getting any banner on safari. 

@Simon Stiefel thanks for your feedback back in April.

Any updates to this - especially for Chrome on OSX?

thank you sir!

@Simon Stiefel Hope you are well. 

Is there any way to re-force Safari to offer (again) the banner choice to use the OSX APP instead of the browser for Jira links clicked?

The OSX APP is still not being utilized by OSX 10.15.7 - but rather takes me to Chrome since I use that as my browser choice.

Thanks for feedback!



Safari didn't get the banner until I made it the default browser. You can't paste a link into the safari url, you have to follow the link into safari to trigger the banner.

This worked for me:

  • Change default browser to Safari.
  • Follow a jira issue link.
  • Click the "open in the jira app" open button.
  • Change default browser back to whatever

jira links still open in the (way faster than the browser) app.
