That doesn't really make a lot of sense.  Links are between issues.

I suspect a better way to put it might be "when looking at an issue, I want to get the links (or issues?) to issues within a specific target project".  e.g. ABC-123 is linked to ABC-456, DEF-234, GHI-567 and DEF-345, so you want to get DEF-234 and DEF-345 because you've chosen project DEF.  Does that sound right?

Yes Nic, 100% right. Any way to achieve this?

Yep.  For each issue you want to look at the links for, use an issueLinkManager call to get the list of links and then check the issue at the end of each one in order to see if it's in the target project

For example - links = issueLinkManager.getLinkCollection (issue, user, true) will return all the links on an issue, as the passed user would see them, and the "true" excludes system links (subtasks and epics I think).  There are other calls you can use, to get just incoming or outgoing links too.

Thank you Nic I will work on it. And will update it when i get the Output.
