issue link script problem


Im trying to read  the linked issues of a specific issue. But the script is only reading the epic link issue.

PA-2000 have a linked issue  OB-1111 also have and epic Link = OB-50

I want to make a transition on OB-1111 but the script never read it. the script only reads the epic link OB-50

following my code.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.issuetype.IssueType
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueInputParameters
import com.atlassian.jira.bc.issue.*
import static com.atlassian.jira.workflow.TransitionOptions.Builder;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;

MutableIssue issue = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueObject("PA-2000");
IssueLinkManager issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager();

for (IssueLink issueLink in issueLinkManager.getInwardLinks( {

MutableIssue linkedIssue = (MutableIssue) issueLink.getSourceObject();
if ( == "blocks" && linkedIssue.getProjectObject().getKey().contains("OSP") && linkedIssue.getStatus().getName().contains("In Research")){
log.warn("OK ")
if (linkedIssue.getIssueType().getName() != "Epic"){
log.warn("IS NOT EPIC")
IssueInputParameters issueInputParameters = ComponentAccessor.getIssueService().newIssueInputParameters();
com.atlassian.jira.workflow.TransitionOptions trasitionOptions = new Builder().skipPermissions().skipValidators().setAutomaticTransition().skipConditions().build();
IssueService issueService = ComponentAccessor.getIssueService();
int actionId = 921;
IssueService.TransitionValidationResult transitionValidationResult = issueService.validateTransition(issue.getReporterUser(), linkedIssue.getId(), actionId, issueInputParameters, trasitionOptions);
IssueService.IssueResult transitionResult

if (transitionValidationResult.isValid()) {

transitionResult = issueService.transition(issue.getReporterUser(), transitionValidationResult);

}else if (!transitionValidationResult.isValid()) {

log.error("ERROR: " + transitionValidationResult.getErrorCollection());

 found the error.


for (IssueLink issueLink in issueLinkManager.getInwardLinks( {

MutableIssue linkedIssue = (MutableIssue) issueLink.getSourceObject();


for (IssueLink issueLink in issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks( {

MutableIssue linkedIssue = (MutableIssue) issueLink.getDestinationObject();

What is the issue link type id of both issues? Are they both blocing the source issue? You are only checking inwards links. That might be the issue.

check outward links from PA-2000 e.g

            List<IssueLink> allOutIssueLink = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager().getOutwardLinks(issue.getId());

            for (Iterator<IssueLink> outIterator = allOutIssueLink.iterator(); outIterator.hasNext();) {
                IssueLink issueLink = (IssueLink);
                String key = issueLink.getDestinationObject().getKey();
               log.warn("linked issued:: "+key)
