Can extra colums be added to the Issue Links section of an Issue

This question was asked in 2012 and a solution was suggested based on the Jira Linker plugin that no longer exists and which has been replaced by JIRA's built-in link capability. I have not found a follow-up on this question, so it is asked again: how can I add columns (fields) to the Issue Links section?

Hello Miranda,

Unfortunately, we indeed do not have this option yet for JIRA:

Customize the columns in linked issues view

Can you confirm to us if you are using JIRA Cloud or Server?

As a customization option for JIRA Server, you can use the plugin Issue Matrix to add new columns/fields to the panel as you need.

Also, feel free to watch and vote on the feature request to increase its priority and receive notifications about any updates.

Let me know if this information helps.

Thanks Petterson, I'll try Issue Matrix since we have JIRA Server.

Ok, I have downloaded a trial version and tested it on our test system. It does exactly what we are asking for.

The issue now is whether our company wishes to fork out the $1200 that it will cost ...

At any rate, case closed. Thanks for your suggestion.

You are welcome, Miranda.

I understand that the cost of the plugin does not fit if you are just needing new columns to your Linked issues.

Since we already have this feature for Sub-tasks, I believe it would not need much effort for our development team to add it to Linked Issues and Epics too, so I would like to re-enforce the importance to receive one more vote from you in the suggestion provided. :)

Have a nice weekend!

It is really important for us and I see all over the Atlassian community discussions and people desperate about this. 

In this case for us the problem is the same: the cost of the plugin is really to much for something that should be as easy as it is for sub-tasks.
