The new Jira issue view

We're in the process of redesigning one of Jira Cloud's key components—the issue view. Log in or create an account at the top-right of this page, then click Watch at the top-right to be notified about the latest goodies we're adding to the new issue view.

You can track specific features that may not have arrived in the new issue view just yet. They're captured as subtasks of this issue:  JRACLOUD-70555 - Getting issue details... STATUS

Latest updates


  • Field tabs: Fields you previously arranged in tabs in the old issue view now appear as "glances" in the new issue view. Look for the tab name when you open an issue, and click it to view the fields. Don't forget, you can edit an issue type's layout by opening an issue and choosing ••• > Configure. From there you can reorder issue fields and edit your tab configuration if you need to. Learn more about creating tabs


  • Link to Confluence pages: Give your issues instant context with links to Confluence pages. Click the Confluence page quick-add button () at the top-left of an issue, then choose from a list of recently visited pages or paste in a link to a page.


  • Edit and delete work log entries: Click the Comments drop-down menu and choose Work log, then choose Edit or Delete for a work log entry.

To turn the new issue view on or off in Jira Software and Jira Core for now, head to Your profile and settings () > Personal settings and toggle the switch for the New Jira issue view.

The new issue view is permanently on for all business boards and next-gen software projects.

If you don't see the Personal settings option when you click your avatar, the switch to turn the new issue view on or off will appear under Profile.
