Using JIRA 5.0.7, I haven't yet found any documentation that explains the meaning of linking an issue to another issue with the options of "fulfilled by" and "fulfills". Can anyone point me to or explain what these options mean and their impact when linking issues?
The wording does not technically matter in Jira. It's a label, which you put on a link type to show to your humans.
You can call your link types "Mr Flibble said" / "Was said by Mr Flibble" or "zut"/"tuz" for all Jira cares. I suspect "fulfills" is a good example of a good label for people doing dependency tracking type things, but you can use whatever you want. Sadly, we've got some rather tortured English in our link names, but it is clear-ish.
Note that there may be plugins that do care, and that when you use "clone", you get to default a prefix, but that's the minor exceptions.
