I am trying to set up a custom field that stores the direction NAME of the link type. I am using a Groovy Scripted field since I don't see a custom field out there that does this. Basically I want a custom field to display the name of the direction of its link to another issue.
Records: JIRA-1, JIRA-2 where JIRA-2 is a duplicate of JIRA-1
Link type: Duplicate (inward = "is duplicated by", Outward = "duplicates")
Custom Field: Link Type
JIRA-1 Link Type = "is duplicated by"
JIRA-2 Link Type = "duplicates"
I am using the Issue Matrix plugin in Custom JQL mode to return Issue Links sorted by issue type. One thing that was not noticed originally was that the inward and outward link type (duplicates, is duplicated by, ect.) is not displayed in the way it renders the Issue Matrix field. I have submitted a couple of requests with Botron (Issue Matrix designer). As a work around in the mean time I was trying to think of a way to get the link type to display as a scripted custom field since custom fields are what is returned. Hope this makes sense and I don't think it is possible because each issue can have multiple links, but any ideas/help would be greatly appreciated.
Stephen, we started working on this feature request but we don't have a solution yet. There isn't a field/column shows the link type that we can simply show. Fabricating a new column on the fly which was our plan, turned out to be too slow and not a good solution. As we come up with some ideas we will keep you posted.
