Bulk remove or delete Issue Links

Hi All -

I have tried to Bulk Update the issues to remove the links from the selected issues.

But I see the "Change Linked Issues" option under Unavailable Actions section at the bottom of the Bulk Change Screen

Please help me with this.

Hi @Sravanthi Boggaram , 

Welcome to the community! 

Unfortunately, this is indeed not possible within Jira, as the bulk edit page states. 

However, If you have Scriptrunner on your instance (an app I would recommend for every instance because of the whole world of custom opportunities it offers via scripting), they have a nice little script prepared here that you can edit to your case and use. 

However, if you are new to scripting, please be careful and try it with 1 issue first. 

Let me know if you need more help with this!

@Sravanthi Boggaram - I agreed with @Tessa Tuteleers , Your other alternative is to conduct bulk update using CSV file.  However you will need an account that has Jira Admin right.

Best, Joseph Chung Yin
