keyboard shortcut to link an issue in Jira (new issue view)?

Is there a keyboard shortcut to link an issue in the new issue view in Jira? 

I don't see it listed, and I'm not seeing an open Jira ticket to request its return.  But I've missed things that were in plain sight before...

There does not appear to be a keyboard shortcut for linking issues.

I found a change request for it in Atlassian's backlog.

The previous answer is correct, but I would add...

The dot '.' menu can be used to link issues. It allows you to link issues on Jira Server and Cloud but requires more key presses.

See Working on issues using the dot menu.

Having said that I think the single key shortcuts are more intuitive - I'm not really a fan of the dot menu.
