Note: The official  Atlassian Documentation states that “You may not have permission to perform all the keyboard shortcut actions described on this page. This depends on how your JIRA administrator(s) have configured permissions for your user account.”. A thoughtful warning, more than a disclaimer, by the folks at Atlassian.

Moreover, while Global Keyboard Shortcuts are available from any JIRA screen, Issue Keyboard Shortcuts are available from JIRA’s “View Issue” and “Issue Navigator” screens only.
