    Shows potential duplicates and helps you to process all of them at once

    Display Similar Issues or Perform a Quick Search

    Preview Issue Description

    Similar Issues are Only Requested if Tab is Open

    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.

    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.

    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.

    More details

    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

    It was nice to have the ability to see similar issues when creating an issue (dynamically on the summary input field) like the server version of this plugin.

    Thanks for your feedback. Due to limitations of current cloud API it is not possible to implement this feature for cloud. If later API allows this, we will implement it.

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does cloud add-on pricing work?

    Cloud pricing is subscription based. You are eligible for support and automatic version updates as long as your subscription is active.

    When your subscription renews each month, your pricing tier for host products and add-ons is automatically adjusted (as necessary) based on the number of users in your instance.

    If you've opted for annual billing for your host product, add-ons are also billed annually. Annual subscriptions for this add-on include a discount (12 months for the price of 10).

    If add-on pricing changes after your initial purchase, there's a 60-day grandfathering period during which you can renew based on the old pricing.

    How do I determine my cloud pricing tier?

    The cloud add-on tier is set automatically based on the maximum tier of the licensed JIRA applications on your instance. For example, if you have JIRA Software (50 users) and JIRA Service Desk (10 agents) on the same instance, your add-on tier is 50 users.

    Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses?

    For server add-ons, purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host application. Server add-ons are always free for community and open-source licenses. Cloud add-ons do not have discounted or free licenses.

    For more details about qualifying for special licenses, see here.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For cloud add-ons, you cannot extend your free evaluation period. All cloud add-ons are immediately subscribed by a user, and we provide a free evaluation period. This is a minimum of 30 days and ends on the second billing cycle after you first subscribe to the add-on.

    Starware is an vendor, committed to providing support for their add-ons at least 8 hours a day, 5 days a week.
