      Description

      Our team recently migrated from Bugzilla to JIRA and now we are missing a nice little feature of our bugzilla clunker.

      When writing a comment on an issue in Bugzilla it is possible to refer to another issue or even to a specific comment of another issue or to a another comment of the same issue by writing:

      There is something remarkable in bug1234comment2 to consider...

      This becomes ("There is something remarkable in bug1234comment2 to consider...") a link to comment #2 of ticket 1234.

      Or even shorter:

      ...as said in comment3 we have to...

      This becomes ("...as said in comment3 we have to...") a link to comment #3 of the same ticket as the new comment.

      One part of this feature is already available, JIRA does create links when it detectes a issue key within a comment. But for linking to another comment i have to use a cumbersome 'Permalink'.

      It is a little bit hard to explain the usage of permalinks to the users when they are used to the easy way of linking offered by Bugzilla. I (as JIRA admin) had been asked to add comment numbers to all comments so it would be possible to refer to other comments by their number.

          I forgot to mention another disadvantage of permalinks vs. the Bugzilla linking style:

          When the JIRA URL changes, the permalinks break! The Buzilla comments are independent from the base URL.

          Thanks Maik,

          At this time we do not intend on implementing this in the foreseeable future.

          I'll close this in the mean time to keep things tidy on our end.
          If we ever look into your request again I'll be sure to reopen this issue.
          Thanks for your suggestion.

          Cheers,
          Roy

          Since this issue is closed it means no one else can vote for it, which is a shame.

          We have recently migrated from Bugzilla and this is commonly raised as a missing feature.
