Jira server issues in search results are missing issuelinks


Running Jira Server 8.5.12

We are using the Jira search API `rest/api/2/search` to get details of a task including `issuelinks` but it always returns an empty list of that field even though there are issues linked to the task. An example of the request is below

curl --request POST \
--url SERVER_URL/rest/api/2/search \
--header 'Accept: application/json' \
--header 'Authorization: xxxx' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--data '{
"jql": "issue = ISSUE-1",
"fields": [
"expand": ["changelog"],
"maxResults": 100


Also tried using `"fields": [*all]` with the same result.


What is kinda surprising is that when I use the issue endpoint `/rest/api/2/issue/{issueIdOrKey}`, the issue links are present in the response.

Wondering what could be causing that behavior if anyone has encountered that.

I generally use the Jira Python library and I see the same thing. The search returns issue and then I have to call that second issue REST resource to get the issue links

I looked for an expand parameter value to do this but didn't see one

Yeah, it is very weird. Doing the extra call isn't really a great option for us since we are querying for many issues at the same time so don't want to overload the server.
