      Atlassian Update – 8 March 2018

      Hi everyone,

      I wanted to provide a quick update on this request. Opening external links in new tabs is one of many improvements coming to Jira Cloud with the new Jira issue view. If you open an issue from your board or backlog that has the new issue view enabled, you should be able to see it for yourself.

      We're progressively adding support for more and more features in the new issue view. The new experience is available for everyone using Jira Core boards, and we're incrementally rolling it out to Jira Software boards and backlogs. The new Jira issue view is only available on Jira Cloud sites. There are not plans to bring it to Jira Server at this time.

      If you're using Jira Software Cloud and the new issue view doesn't fit how you work in Jira Software right now, you can turn it off in your user profile under Labs.

      Regards,
      Dave Meyer

      Some users need to have external links in Description / Comments to open in new browser window.
      Looks like this should be per-user configurable.

      Workaround
      Use the middle-click on your mouse if you have a three-button mouse, ctrl-click on Windows/Unix, or cmd-click on Mac.
