Automation for JIRA - Linking issues

How to write setup in Automation for JIRA plugin
that when creating Issue and depending on certain value 
automation should create new task and link them.


I have managed to create the new task based on certain value, but
I am unable to link the tasks. 


In audit log i get this error:

Unknown fields set during create, they may be unavailable for the project/type. Check your custom field configuration. Fields ignored -Linked Issues (issuelinks)


I have link issue field on create form so this should not be the problem.

Add "Linked Issues" to the "Create Issue Screen" (Jira Settings > Issues > Screens) that is being used.

Is the linked issue being created by a script, or with an add-on (JSU or something)?

It is created by  Automation for JIRA plugin

Did you configure the Choose fields to set on the Create issue step?
