how to link multiple issues at once in the new view

In the old view you could paste in several issue keys/numbers (separated by whitespace) into the link text box, and it would link them all to a single ticket.  The new view doesn't allow you to do that.  I get an error saying the it can't find the issue with the given key.

How do you do this in the new view?  It will be very tedious to have to link 100 issues to one ticket one at a time.  For now I will just switch back to the old view to do this.

As pointed out previously, I do not believe this functionality exists in the "new view" yet either.

I found myself in the same position and ended up resorting to using the Jira REST API - in particular, the "Create issue link" endpoint.

Below is a solution that uses Node.js to link an arbitrary number of issues to a single issue

  1. Install Node.js if you do not currently have it installed on your computer

  2. Create a new directory somewhere on your computer
    mkdir linking-jira-issues
  3. Within this newly created directory (i.e. "cd" into this directory), run the following commands
    npm init

    npm install node-fetch
  4. Create a file named index.js
  5. Copy and paste the contents of this GitHub gist into your index.js file
  6. Fill in the variables with appropriate values
  7. Execute the file by running
    node index.js


As long-winded as it is, that should hopefully link all the tickets you specify to a single Jira ticket without having to do each one manually in the UI.

Thank you.  I finally got around to testing this and it works.

Awesome! Glad to hear that!

Sounds about right.  More basic functionality removed.....

I don't think this functionality has been implemented yet, however, there have been numerous requests for this feature. Refer to the following: link multiple issue requests
