Getting Issue Links Reliably Via Server API


I have two tickets I use for testing my code below. One (ITSD-94) is an epic with 2 story links. The other (ITSD-1062) is an epic with a "Child-Parent" link, which is a custom link we created.

With getLinkCollectionOverrideSecurity().getAllIssues(), I get no issues from ITSD-94, but do get the one issue under ITSD-1062.


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
def issue = issueManager.getIssueObject('ITSD-94')
//def issue = issueManager.getIssueObject('ITSD-1062')

def issueLinkList = issueLinkManager.getLinkCollectionOverrideSecurity(issue).getAllIssues()
for (def issueLink: issueLinkList) {
log.error 'issue link2: ' + issueLink//.getKey()

Hi @Paul Tiseo

The issue link manager will return items that have been created by issue linking.

the relationship between stories and the epic you set on them is not an issue link

you will need to write code to access epic stories specifically
