Can the "Link" fields be updated after the Bug is created

The "Link" fields only appear on the 'bug create' screen in my project. 


You don't always have this information when creating the 'bug', so is there a way to update these fields after the bug has been created?

Hi @Holloway Winfred ,

Yes, you should be able to update the field. You need to add it to the corresponding screen, e.g. when you are editing. If you go to Project settings-> Screens, select the one for the 'bug' issue type, click on the screen for editing, and add the field:

Ok, Carlos, I thought that is the way it is supposed to work, but for me it doesn't. 

I've followed your directions, but on the Issue Bug view screen and Bug edit screen, the Link fields are not displayed.  Even if I add values to the Link fields during Bug creation.

I apologize, the Link fields do appear in the View/Edit screens if a link is added in the create screen.  But do not appear if no Link was added in the create screen.  

So it looks like you have to add some values to the Link fields in the create screen, if we would like to have it displayed or add additional Links after the initial Bug creation.

Is this correct?

I found the "Link Issues" Widget on the Bug "Edit" screen.  Right in front of my face the whole time... Duh!!!  (If it were a snake...)

Thanks for the response.  

I'm glad to hear, @Holloway Winfred . Thanks for following up :-)
