How To Limit Number of Linked Issues based on Link Type

My Jira instance currently has an issue link type titled, 'Portolio' which is used to link our Features to our Portfolio Epics using the native Linked Issues field.

Currently, some users are linking multiple Portfolio Epics to each Feature which is breaking our model and hierarchy structure (each Feature should only reference one Portfolio Epic).

Is there any way to limit the # of issues linked via the specific 'Portfolio' link?

Hi @Roman Chowdhury 


Unfortunately list of issue links is global which means that every user see full list.

I found that there are suggestions created at atlassian:


Also found that on marketplace you can find app that will probably help you:


Hope that will help you.




Hi Sebastian,

Thank you, that is helpful. However, I was wondering if there was a way to limit a specific link type to only 1 link.

For example, I want any Feature issue to only have 1 'Portfolio Epic' link. This would mean the Feature can only be linked to one Portfolio Epic through the Linked Issues field and the system will not allow another link of the same type (Portfolio).

Any advice on this?



I think that you can do this with script runner behaviours. Please check this:
