Jira link prevent duplicate if already duplicated by

Hi all,

Is there a way to prevent an issues from being linked or closed as duplicate if it is already duplicated by the same issue.   E.G.

Bug1 =>  duplicates => bug2

So bug1 is closed as duplicate.  Then someone goes into bug2 and links it as a duplicate of bug1

bug2 => duplicates => bug1

and closes it as a duplicate.   So bugs bugs were closed and no fixed was done.

So really I am asking can someone help me with the groovy code to prevent being closed if an issue has both inward and outward (duplicates and duplicated by) links to the same issue.

Thanks,

Robert

This would be my guess:

! (issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks(issue.id)*.issueLinkType.name.contains('Duplicate') && issueLinkManager.getInwardLinks(issue.id)*.issueLinkType.name.contains('Duplicate') )

It works.  Will leave up here for a code reference as this could be useful...
