How to change default value on Linked Issues to "relates to" from "blocked"?

On my system, the default value is "blocked" for Linked Issue. I want to change it to "relates to".

Any idea?

The only way to do that is to make 'Blocked' the first value in the issue linking section. JIRA will just take the first value there and display it as the default.

But it seems on Admin Area -> Issue Linking that the system will sort link type automatically from A to Z.

I just tried to add a new link type called "Connect", just like I expected, the system saved and sorted it after "Cloners".

Maybe a script in the announcement banner to sort the field?

Not sure about how to write it though.
