Custom Field to Link Issues

Hi

Is there a custom field to link isses at time of entering in the details of a bug, rather than have to do if from the view screen?

Thanks

Simon

Hi ,

You can try a free plugin I've made: Easy Links for JIRA. It provides two new custom field types: Single Issue Link Picker and Multiple Issue Link Picker. These custom fields are displayed as dropdown select lists, which you can filter and autocomplete by typing on it (see screenshots). Also, you can configure the customfields to restrict the available issues to select (using a JQL expression when creating the custom field), and the link type that the field will be associated to. When you select a value, a new issue link is created between the current issue and the selected one(s), that you can manage as a regular issue link.

In addition, you can use the custom field in JQL queries (for example: "Blocking Task" = TEST-123), and in dashboard gadgets (pie charts, filters, etc).

I hope it can solve your issue,

greetings!

 

 

HI Fernando,

This looks like a very useful plugin. Does it work on JIRA 6.4 ?

Best Wishes

 

Hi Edward,

at this moment it is only available for 7.x.x, sorry :sad:

Regards

 

Hi Fernando,

Is this plugin(Easy links for JIRA) compatible with JIRA Core(7.xx) Server?, as i could see its compatible with JIRA Service desk application only.

Is it okay to add that plugin via upload add-on button?

Regards,

Kavitha

Hi Kavitha

We are using this plugin for Jira software and it works just fine. I see no reason on why it should not work on core.

Hi Fernando. We have been using your easylinks addon for about 12 months and its been great. However it no longer works in JIRA 8.0.2 and we have it on a few of our issue forms. This is preventing users from creating these issues and we are not sure what to do. 

Can you help. Many thanks

Jon

I'm super keen to see this work in 8 too

No, it does not work on 8.0.2, unfortunately.

+1 for having this upgraded for Jira 8 - this is a fantastic addon - we would definitely still be interested if it was paid as well.  Currently it is holding up our upgrade to v8.  Are there any plans to upgrade it or does anyone know of any similar alternatives?

Like Gautham Hari likes this

+1. We also need it!
There is no mention to this app anymore on Marketplace!
The nearest I found was https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1220571/custom-fields-issue-picker?hosting=server&tab=overview, a paid one!

I'm looking forward for a reply from the author of Easy Links for JIRA...

The app is still available in the marketplace and it supports Jira Server 8.x:

You can add the "Issue links" (or some similar name) field to the create screen, providing you are on jira 4.4 onwards.

It is throwing the following exception for version 6.4.13. Please help.

Will you be building this for Cloud? 

I second that, having this on cloud would be really great.
