ScriptRunner Cloud Creating Issue Link

When running some code in a Script Listener, specifically this POST:

def newLink = post("rest/api/3/issueLink")
.header("Content-Type", "application/json")
type: {name: "Cloners"},
inwardIssue: {key: newEpic.key},
outwardIssue: {key: issue.key}


I am seeing the following error: 


2018-10-23 17:56:25.396 WARN - POST request to rest/api/3/issueLink returned an error code: status: 400 - Bad Request
body: {"errorMessages":["Unrecognized field \"delegate\" (Class, not marked as ignorable\n at [Source: com.atlassian.plugin.connect.plugin.auth.scope.InputConsumingHttpServletRequest$1@1ab82f46; line: 1, column: 22] (through reference chain:[\"type\"]->[\"delegate\"])"]}


I don't understand this error as "Delegate" is not even a field that exists within our JIRA Instance. Is there any better way to do Issue Link creation? Have tried a few ways now...

Hi Andrew,

Thank you for your question.


I have created an example Script Console script which can be ran from the Script Console and shows how to link two issues together. 

You can view the example script here and can use this example code as a reference to see the syntax that must be specified to link issues together so that you can use this approach inside of your script. 

If this response has answered your question can you please mark it  as accepted so that other users searching for a similar question can see that this is a correct answer.
