Bookmarklets are great and I'd like to share with you some of mine that I use for Jira. All examples here are using my personal Jira instance and are designed to easily put in your own CSS selectors as your Jira instance may vary.
Copy full ticket name as link
This is my most used Jira bookmarklet. It takes the current ticket and copies the ticket number and title as a link to your clipboard. For example, the below ticket highlights what gets used:
The link that is copied on to your clipboard looks like:
The code for this is:
If you want to look into how I wrote the above with the Clipboard API check out:
Widen Jira issue
On older versions of Jira, long comments, tables, or images could be cut off the side of the main ticket body. Newer versions don't suffer as badly from this, but sometimes widening the main ticket is helpful. See the before and after below:
The code is:
Add up selected backlog tickets
Sometimes you're in your backlog view and need to add up a few tickets. Maybe to estimate your next sprint during planning maybe during refinement. This bookmarklet is a quick way to add up the selected values.
The values are put into a simple
alert() and non-number values are skipped in the calculation.
I hope you found some of these useful in your day to day Jira-ing. To see more (or updated!) head to my bookmarklets repo in GitHub:
