Message «we couldn’t link the issue»


I am trying to create a generic bug to regroup links to some product bugs in a product implementation project. 

I have been able to add links to 5 bugs, but every time I try to add a link to another one, I get a message «we couldn’t link the issue» «Please wait a few moments, then give it another try». Needless to say that however long I wait, it never works.Capture d’écran 2022-04-14 à 14.19.36.png

If I click on the yellow triangle, I get this message :

If I click on the link (that seems created, apart from the yellow triangle), I can access the linked issue, but then if i come back to the previous screen, the link has disappeared, and only the 5 previously created appear in the list.

Hi there,

I've just had the same issue.

I've solved it by making myself an ADMINISTRATOR in the project of the issue I'm trying to link.

( just being a MEMBER didn't solve the problem )

It's looking like it's a permissions issue (though making everyone an admin is *not to be recommended* )

@Éric Proust Welcome to the Atlassian community

Did you try clearing your browsers cache?  


yes, with the same result unfortunately.

@Éric Proust are you able to add links to any issues?  Do you get this message for all issue links?

I have been able to add links to 5 issues. The other issues I want to add are in the same project as the first five, but cannot be linked.

@Éric Proust have you checked to make sure that the permission schema did not get updated on the project removing the ability to link issues?
