Please note this is not a question about 'Linked Issues', but the 'Issue Links' field that allows you to add a link for, for example, a wiki page (in Confluence) to a JIRA issue. My use is as follows: We use Confluence for a product documentation wiki. When working on issues in JIRA we commonly add a link to the relevant wiki page via 'Issue links' to provide some additional context and help with the documentation process. I then have a JIRA Issue/Filter Macro on a page that forms part of our release notes. I use 'Columns to display' to select what information is displayed about the issues. Because 'Issues Links' is not a column I cannot select it; but it would be really useful to be able to display a column with a link to the relevant page in the documentation. Thus, is there a way to add this field as a column?
I've done something similar with a derived field - you can do these with the script-runner addon quite easily. The code needed reads the issue link area and simply parrots out any links (mine ignored issue links on the basis that "issue links" already does that and the links to documentation doesn't need to be mixed in to confuse it all)
Thanks Luc, but my need is more about making the existing 'Issue Links' field appear as a COLUMN in JIRA. I probably confused matters by referring to Confluence. Leaving Confluence aside, the question is how to add this existing field as a JIRA column. Sorry I wasn't clear enough.
