Behaviours on Linked Issues field


For one issue type, I want to restrict the field "Linked issue" to only one value.

I succeeded to do it for the EDIT window (see picture Edit-Window), by using Behaviour plugin. But the code doesn't work for the "Link" dialog box (see picture Link-Dialog-Window) from the menu MORE -> Link

As the field's name is not the same, I supposed that is the reason, but I don't know how to get this name.

Can you help me please?

Just in case, here is the code I'm using:

// Get a pointer to the Issue Links Field
def issueLinksCF = getFieldById("issuelinks-linktype")
issueLinksCF.setFieldOptions(["relates to":"relates to"])

Behaviours work only for the Create, Edit, View and Transition Screens. They do not work for the Link screen.

Hi Alexey,

Thank you for this indication, it explains why it doesn't work.

Do you know how to restrict the field in this dialog box with another method?

You would need to write your own javascript and put it as web-resource in Scriptrunner

You can provide atl.general context for your javascript file.

OK tks.


I will have a look
