I've been trying to create a new issue linked to a parent issue by generating an HTML link, based on the guide here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAKB/Creating+Issues+via+direct+HTML+links
HOWEVER, JIRA seems to be ignoring the issue key, even though it's valid. The URL I'm using is this:
Interestingly enough, when I pass an INVALID issue key, it adds it to the list box and then complains that the issue key does not exist:
Generating this error:

So obviously I have the right query parameters!
It was down below from Dec 11:
Same problem here. One workaround that I found, and might work for you:&description=relates+to+<issue-key>
It converts a valid issue key to a link.
It's a workaround in the sense that it at least makes a clickable reference to the other issue. It's not a workaround in that it doesn't leverage the searchability of the normal "linked" field. If you're consistent about the description you add, you can add to the JQL expression:
text ~ "blocks <projectkey>"
text ~ "relates to <projectkey>"
in order to pull up all the issues you've updated this way.
Having the same issue, the link only seems to be added to the "Issue link" box if its an invalid issue key. Has any one figured this out yet?
