Specifically, this deals with a known issue here: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-questions/Is-there-a-way-of-adding-Issue-links-as-a-column-in-JIRA-issue/qaq-p/266975
I want to add a little bit to this and see where you stand on this missing functionality. Let's get right into the issue here...
When creating an issue in JIRA, LINKED ISSUES is available. This allows for an issue to link to JIRA tickets only. It is one-third of the functionality of the LINK modal window. But that's fine...
Once you either link a JIRA issue in a Confluence page, or add a linked JIRA issue in the originating JIRA issue, you now have "Issue Links" as a field. This modal allows linking JIRA issues, Confluence pages, and External URLs.
What appears to be *full functionality* only exists when you have made a JIRA-JIRA, or Confluence-to-JIRA link. Am I missing something? All I want to do is expose the [ + ] functionality of "Issue Links" without having to create a false linkage. Specifically, I want to link to Confluence and External URLs without having to create a dummy JIRA link first.
Am I missing something?
There is a Link operation. Operations are available for already-created issues.
Some operations you already know are Assign, Edit, or Comment.
So .link is an interesting method. Is there no way to expose that to the main issue area? The workaround you're suggesting is:
-write an issue, save
- ... LINK
That's great. It's unintuitive, though. Is there a way to expose the "Issue links" field when it's empty? I never found a way to put that in without first having an existing issue, and then it was automatic, of course.
