How can I search for issues that do NOT have any issue links set?

Hi, I am wanting to search for roadmap issues that have not had their BoM issue links set.  

When I use the field "issuelinks" (or any other form) in JQL search, JIRA returns "Field does not exist"

Can anyone help?

Hi Jodie,

Here's the documentation for the linkedIssues() function:

Format examples: 

  • issue in linkedIssues(ISSUE-123)
  • issue in linkedIssues(ISSUE-123, "is related to")

I don't know of a way to return NO links.  The only workaround I know of is to visually detect issues with no links.  On your search results page or dashboard, add the "Linked Issues" column.  It will be visually obvious which issues have links and which do not.  Sorry I don't have a better answer for you.

For your "Field does not exist" error, I found this:
