Getting Started


This page is a quick guide to getting started with External Share for Jira. For more information on all the available link options, as well as Space and Global settings, follow the links below (smile)

Link Options

Space Settings

Global Settings

Getting Started

On any Jira issue, click the External Share tab on the activities panel

Once you've created your link and selected the options you require (see Link Options for more details) you can send the link directly via email 

You can customize the format of your email, decide if you want to share the password, and add a friendly message

If a password has been set, you will need to enter it before viewing the issue

The shared issue displays the issue summary, description, Status, Assignee, Reporter and Components by default

Any additional custom fields are displayed on the right side of the issue view

Top Tip

If you forget to add an option to a link, want to change the password or update the expiration date just go back and edit the link. You don't need to create a new link, the existing link can be edited and updated as many times as you need (thumbs up)

To see all links that have been created in a Project, click the "External Share" button in the project side panel
