Can I change the order of linked Issues drop down list?

I want to change the order of Linked Issues drop down: Now it starts with ''is blocked by'' and I want it to be at the bottom of the list. And the stating be: "relates to".


Thank you

Hello @Natalia Lezhai

Currently it's not possible to define the order of linked issues.

Here is the open ticket, feel free to vote on it

Note that this is now a BROKEN feature not an enhancement.  The former default was carefully laid out as "relates to" (the most general one).  The new GUI in 2019 broke this by a) making the default "blocked by" and b) hiding the former default!  it is item 10 in a 9 item dropdown list.  You have to scroll to even know that it is there.  That mistake should be fixed now, without waiting for this customization enhancement.

Like Daniel Tomberlin likes this

Having 'blocks' first in 15 values to select from (not 9, fixed @Bill Sherman?) with the only value we really use 'relates to' at the very bottom is annoying. People are use to 'relates to' as the default and now it's a mess. The order seems to have no order. >SMH< Please fix!
