Groovy Script to show an issue type that it's linked to

I am trying to add a field to be shown in a column that will show what kind of an issue type are the issues that are linked.  

 

(Example - a story has two issues linked to it and if i query with column linked i will see those issues but i would not see what kind of an issue they are)

If you have issue linked to your story it shows up in Issue Links area which among other things shows icon identifying the linked issue type.

He's asking for a column so thats an indication he's looking at the issue navigator and not the issue view pane.

You'll need a bit of code to do that.  The issue navigator is coded to simply pull fields from each selected issue on a single line. Not data from other issues - one single issue per line.

So the most simple solution that springs to my mind is a scripted field that iterates over all the links and builds a display of all the issue types it finds.  (I'd use the Script Runner to do that)

 

That was my initial thought as well. Would anyone know one that would work?
