    Description

      Hello!

      I would like external links to open in a new tab by default. (Or, enable a setting to turn this on and off).

      I've found requests for this feature dating back to 2006:

      https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRACLOUD-9380

      In fact, throughout the years, it has been requested many times, across iterations of JIRA:

      https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-questions/Open-external-links-in-new-tab-or-window/qaq-p/77373

      https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSDSERVER-5779

      https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSDCLOUD-514

       

      I could go on, but you can search for some of them here:
      https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSDCLOUD-514?jql=text%20~%20%22open%20link%20in%20new%20tab%22

      This can be done by adding an attribute to your html anchor tag component:

      https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTML/Element/a#attr-target

      There is probably something in your front end that makes this harder than simply adding the attribute, but hopefully this is a small lift for a long-requested feature.

       

      Thank you!
