How do I show all issues with a link (linkedissue) using JQL

I know how to search for links of a specific #, but I can't figure out the JQL to just show all Issues that have a linked issue.  I am trying to find out what links users are using for story to story linking when there is a dependency. HELP!

Hello Jana,

alternatively, if you have Script Runner installed, you can use the following functions in JQL:

issueFunction in hasLinks()

This function supports a link description as parameters, e.g. to show only issues with a "blocks" Link:

issueFunction in hasLinks(blocks)

Additionally, there's he hasLinkType function, which looks for specific types of links. E.g. all issues with links of Type Duplicate:

issueFunction in hasLinkType("Duplicate")

You can of course provide additional filter criteria and combine them using AND and OR as usual using JQL.

I hope this helps you.

You will need a plugin like JQL Tricks to do this.
