Filtering issue type when using issue linking

Hello Everyone



My service desk team complains that when they are going to link an issue by using issue linking they see all types of issues that they don't want to link. Is there any way to restring the issue linking to just one specific issue type or specific JQL query?

3 answers



Jira doesn't have this ability by default, but if you have scriptrunner you can use the linkedissuesof issuefunction to search for specific link types.

Here's more info on how to do this:

Hello Pablo,

You can easily get the result using JQL Search Extensions

You can search for issues that have a particular link type with the following JQL:

linkType = "is blocked by"

The above JQL Find all issues which are blocked by another issue, you can replace it with any other link type.

The full documentation can be found here.



I faced similar kind of issue last time, I am still searching for some proper solution


There are many functionality that would be very easy to provide and would make happy everyone. 

I was assuming it could be done similar as when you reduce the resolution using jira properties, I don't know if still possible in Jira cloud since I am noticing many changes from server to cloud.
