Linked issues options Sorting

By Default when we click on Linked issues the first option we see is "is blocked by" instead I want to see "relates to" since thats the option we widely use

the rest of the options are also used but this is widely used

Hello @Nisath Jabeen Saleem

Thank you for reaching out.

By default, the issue link type is ordered in alphabetical order by the issue link name, that's why the type "Blocks"/"Is blocked by" is displayed first.

That being said, you can easily change the order of the link types by adding a number before its title - Don't worry about the link name, it will still display as it is today. You can follow the steps below to achieve this:

  1. Navigate to your Jira site > Click at the cog icon at the top-right of the page > Issues
  2. under the Section issue features, click on Issue Linking
  3. Click to edit the title of each issue link type you have, adding a number before it as in the screenshot below:
