How to set 'Parent Link' field when creating issue using direct HTML link in Jira Server

I'm using the feature and functionality found on this page:

I have a custom field called Action Links that displays several HTML links that do various things like create sub-tasks or different issue types.

I can not figure out how to get Parent Link to set on the new issue being created however.  I've used the view source code trick to find out that my "Parent Link" field is customfield_12304.


This is the code I'm using.  

sb <<= ' | <a href = "!init.jspa?pid=16813&issuetype=12100&customfield_13744=' + issueKey + '&customfield_12304=' + issueKey +'" target=_blank>Create MSF Feature</a>' //Create MSF Feature


Here are the results:



My suspicion is that I have my syntax wrong when trying to include two custom fields that both share the same value.  Anyone have any ideas?

Your 2 fields look a bit different in their styling. Are they the same custom field type?

Perhaps the second one has a specific format it needs.
