Add, edit, or delete a shortcut

You can add shortcuts to the project sidebar that link to information you think your team may find useful. When you add a link, it's available to all users who can access the project.

To add, delete or edit a link, you need to have the Jira Administrator permission or the Project Administrator permission. When adding or editing a link you also need to have the full web address, and you can optionally give it a label that will show in the project navigation sidebar. Labeling the shortcuts makes it easier to identify where the link will take you.

  1. Choose Projects and select a starred or recent project, or choose View all projects and select a project.

  2. Select Add shortcut in the project navigation sidebar.

  3. Enter the web address and name for your shortcut and select Add.
