Issue Beacon lets you quickly search for contextually similar issues in Issue View

Issue Beacon lets you swiftly search for issues similar in context without leaving Issue View or switching to Issue Navigator.
With **Issue Beacon**, you can filter issues and display search results in a glance panel in **Issue View**, quickly finding the issues you need, right where you need them. The search process is both fast and straightforward.

For a basic search, you can use buttons representing fields or properties of the current issue. With each button push, you can effortlessly narrow down search results with minimal keystrokes and no JQL knowledge.
