Shows potential duplicates and helps you to process all of them at once
Display Similar Issues or Perform a Quick Search
Without leaving current page just perform a quick search on similar issues tab. You can navigate between results using cursor keys and open selected issue with Enter. You can make free text search or issue number search.
Preview Issue Description
You can preview issue description fully rendered (with rich text) without navigating to actual issue. This is also done on demand to reduce unnecessary load on you Jira instance.
Similar Issues are Only Requested if Tab is Open
Since similar issues are only loaded when the tab is open, so it does not effect your Jira performance. When needed its content is loaded after issue page is visible so it does not delay your access time to issue.
It is very common that very similar or exact duplicate issues are reported by different users. This plugin adds a new tab to issue page and shows potential duplicates of the issue you are viewing. You can effectively process all of them at once.
Search is done with roots of the words (stemming) in your indexing language, so an exact word to word match is not necessary. Most similar results are shown first but you can cycle through all of them with the next button.
Of course Jira's security settings determines who can see which issues, if you restrict a person from viewing some issues it will not be displayed for that person in similar issues tab.
This plugin is also available for self hosted Jira servers. Due to limitations of Jira Cloud API, cloud version (this plugin) is more limited. It is not possible to implement following features of the server version, sorry:
- Real-time potential duplicate search in issue creation dialog
- Quick search from Jira's upper right search box
