Import the interface in your class:

import com.atlassian.jira.bc.issue.link.IssueLinkService;

Then just add it to your constructor:

public MyPluginComponentImpl(ApplicationProperties applicationProperties, IssueLinkService issueLinkService)
    {
        this.applicationProperties = applicationProperties;
        this.issueLinkService = issueLinkService;
    }

Spring will autowire it for you.

Thanks Aseem,

but I am using the ScriptRunner plugin and trying to implement a post transition function with Groovy.

Ahhh...it would have been great to know that beforehand.

Try this instead:

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.bc.issue.link.IssueLinkService;

issueLinkService = ComponentManager.getComponentInstanceOfType(IssueLinkService.class);
