Is there any way to set the default issue link type, when I create a linked issue? I wanted to use the "relates to" link type by default, but don't want to delete the others.
Or how can I sort the existed issue link types (if it is possible)?
https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-questions/Can-I-change-the-default-link-type-from-quot-Cloned-to-quot-to/qaq-p/443313 suggests that the default link type is the one with the first name alphabetically. But I'm seeing other results in my JIRA instances. The issue in jac is https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRASERVER-31425 but is Closed, Won't FIx.
Update: it remembers your last choice
Thank you for the answers!
I think I found a solution, at least it's working for me. The method is the following:
1. Check, what is the default issue link type now.
2. Go to Issue linking settings, and search for the currently default link type.
3. Edit this, rename the Outward Description of the issue link type by typing a * before its description (for example: *causes)
4. Check again the default issue link type. Is it now what you want? If yes, it's done. If not, then start it again from step 2. (maybe you need to rename the Inward Description too, if the default issue link type is became one of them)
I tested it on 3 different instances and worked, so I hope this is a valid solution. :)
Issue links are ordered alphabetically based on the link name. If you have a link type that you would like to place at the top of the list place a * in front of the link name. This will place it at the top making the first or default in the list. The Outward Description and Inward Description can be whatever you would like it to be.
Hopefully this helps:
It appears you can achieve this by adjusting the name. The sort is based of the name value (alphabetically). What I did was edit the types and added a number series in front of the name and it sorted in numeric order. You do not necessarily need to change the values in the Outward or Inward descriptions unless you desire to. Once you go back to your issue or create a new issue the proper sort will be in place the way you designed it. For us we wanted related to the default.
