How can I count issue links using Power BI?

I have project A and project B. 


Project A is essentially customer interactions. Project B is issues created as a result of these interactions. 


There is a one to many relationship between Project B (issues) and Project A (interactions). Essentially, an interaction may link to one or more issues. Linking occurs from Project A - essentially:

a. Customer interaction is opened. Customer reports issue.

b. Interaction is then (potentially) linked to new or exising issue.

I want to count the number of interactions assocated with each linked issue. 

How can that be accomplished in PowerBI? I'm using the Power BI Connector for Jira to expose my projects and access them via an OData feed in PowerBI. Specifics for a n00b appreciated.

The end goal is to produce a report with a sum field of the number interactions linked to each issue to prioritize fixes based on the number of reports received regarding a given issue.
