I can’t really believe I haven’t done this before but it only crossed my mind the other day. There are a few plugins available but there’s really no need to do that.
The aim is to be able to jump to a ticket – or basically any search in JIRA using the keyboard alone. In my case, I’d usually type “Ctrl+T” (new tab), “Ctrl+K” (select omnibox), “j AM-100” and it should take me straight to the correct ticket.
Visit the search engines management page (chrome://settings/searchEngines) and click Add.
Search Engine: Jira
Note: Chrome command is “Ctrl+K”, Backspace, “j AM-100”. You need to clear the default search before it lets you switch to a JIRA search.
Is easier – just right click on the search box and select “Add a Keyword for this Search…”
