Hi Dalya

 

You can't bulk link tickets using bulk change. If you have the structure add-on you can create the links by dragging and dropping on an active structure (one that makes changes to JIRA tickets) or if you know the keys, type them out in notepad using xxx-1234,xxx-1235,xxx-1236 format and copy/pasting them into the linked issue field on the edited ticket is another possibility. 

 

You may find it easier to link from the story rather than the TC (assuming that the story has many test cases and not vice versa). 

 

Hope this helps,

KK

Thanks for the feedback, it's a good feature to have though wink from the flow i described above for testers ..

It's likely been raised as a feature request or suggestion with Atlassian/Zephyr so if it's something that you really want, I suggest locating it and upvoting smile

Jira does not allow to bulk link user stories but you can open the story and link multiple test cases there. This is just another way to bulk link few test cases  but if you have to link higher number this will be a little time consuming.
