Count number of links of a certain type on an issues


I need to create a field which shows me the number of links on an issue having a certain link type. I found in this forum:

So I tried:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
a = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager().getLinkCollection(issue, issue.reporter).getAllIssues().size()
return a.toString()

Unfortunately this always returns '0'

But anyway I assume what I really want is something like that:

Unfortunately this as well always returns '0'

Any ideas?

Thank you very much

Hi Mark,

Not sure if this counts but I found this link which might help you out:

Hi Benito,

appreciate you try to help. The article you sent is about REST and I'm not able to transform any information from that article to my problem.

Hope someone has another idea.
