How to add linked issues to bulk change


Hi all,

I would like to ask if it's possible to add field "linked issues" to bulk change?

Hi @Anna Konieczna ,

I do not understand your question. What is "massive bulk" ?

Hi @Jack Brickey , sorry my mistake: I mean bulk change:

When I'm doing a bulk change, I would like to choose field "linked issues" but I can't see it.

Below you can see one piece of screen (but even down the page there is not available  field "linked issues"

Thanks that was my guess. Unfortunately you cannot edit linked issues in bulk using Bulk change. I have read where others have used CSV import to accomplish this. There may be an addon that would help. Actually I just looked and found this - bulk-linker-server 

@Jack Brickey I've installed Bulk Linker as you mentioned and now it's working! Thank you very much!



Hello @Anna Konieczna

You don't need an extra plugin for this. JIRA (from v8.13 onwards IIRC) is clever enough to understand what you are trying to do.

e.g. if you need to link 27 tickets to another (say as Resolved By).
You only need to compile the keys of all 27 JIRA tickets that you try to link, delimited by space.

Once you just click or move the focus out of the target text box, JIRA will render and prepare the links, as you can see below.


But you might have a more complicated use-case.

I hope that helps.

Hi @Ioannis Drositis seems to be good solution! Thank you for your explanation.

So this used to work, but now it looks like when I copy/paste a list of such values, it now either clears, or tries to interpret the whole thing and one value, even with the spaces. Any ideas what happened to break this incredibly useful functionality?

Thank you so much @Ioannis Drositis

This worked perfectly fine for me just now for bulk editing 84 items. 

What are you doing that we are not? I'm getting the same result as Rabbit.

We created the free plugin for bulk link action to resolve the problem with bulk linking - Issue Link Manager.

I hope for your feedback after trying it. 

Best regards,
