JIRA brings users to login page when accessing issue link from Excel (and also word docs) even after logged in. Users have the permission to view the issue.
- Login to JIRA
- Export JIRA issues into Excel sheet
- Open the Excel sheet and double click on issue key(hyperlink)
- Make sure that the link is open in the same browser which has the login session
- JIRA will redirect user to https://<JIRA.domain>/login?dest-url=%2Fbrowse%2FABC-123&permission-violation=true
It seems that this bug is also affecting word document; not only Excel sheets.
PS : I am not able to reproduce this issue in JIRA 7.
