The easiest Alfred workflow to open Jira tickets on a Mac
When talking in Slack (or similar) people may reference (but not link) Jira issues that we want to view. Here we use Alfred's Universal Actions to construct a URL from the ticket ID and open it in your browser.

How to recreate this automation for use in your own workflows
Step 1: Create an Alfred Workflow
Create an Alfred Workflow that takes in your keyword and opens it in a browser. It's only 2 steps - Universal Action and Open URL.
Universal Action node
Open URL node _* note - you may need to change the URL construction to match your implementation of JIRA _
Step 2: Spot unlinked Jira reference
I come across these release notes in Slack and want to check out one of the tickets.
Step 3: Highlight ticket
Step 4: Hit your Alfred Universal Action hotkey
Select the workflow you just created and your Jira ticket will open.
