Linking existing Jira issues

Find the Jira app in the right-side panel and click Link an existing issue (1) to get started.

The app shows a selection of the five most recently used issues. If you do not see the issue that you are looking for use the issue search (1) to find the issue.

You can search by issue key, e.g. ENG-25, or by text directly. If you require additional search options, you can also search by JQL using the jql: prefix.

Available search options

  • By issue key: type the issue key into the search box. Example: ENG-25

  • By text: type free-form text into the search box. Example: As a user, I want to link a conversation

  • By JQL: type jql: followed by your JQL query into the search box. Example: jql: issuetype = bug

When you have found the issue that you would like to link simply click on it to link (2).

A confirmation message will indicate that the link has been established successfully. Click Done to return to the app home screen where you can now see the linked Jira issue (1) and an internal note (2) to record the event.

Paid features

Note that the linked Jira issue (1) only shows up in the sidebar if you have the Jira companion app installed.
