Hi @Kendis Team,

You can do it if you're a Jira admin:

  1. Go to Jira Settings > Issues > Issue linking
  2. Add a new link type


Hope this helps,

- Manon

Hi @Kendis Team ,

As a Jira administrator, you can activate issue linking to let your team create links between relevant issues across all Jira applications on your site

  • Select the Jira icon > Jira settings > Issues.
  • Click Issue Linking.
  • Fill in the form below the existing issue links.
  • You can edit the name, outward description, and inward description at any time.
  • Click Add.

Great. Thanks!
