Where are you trying this?
A Jira text field will simply spot TS-10 and create a direct link to it where you've typed it. There's nothing more complex than that, it won't create a full "issue link" just because you type in a bit of text in a field.
I'm trying it in the issue description of the blocked issue. I can link the blocking issue using
but I don't figure out how to set it as blocking (I'm talking about this feature: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Linking+Issues)
As Nic noted, the optimal method for linking issues is to use the More button while viewing a specific issue and select the Link option.
This will let you select a specific linking relationship. You can use this information to filter results in the Issue Navigator via the "linkedissues()" function.
Something along the lines of
issue in linkedIssues("SRV-148","depends on")
would return any linked issues using this link relationship.
You can define your own link types to suit your specific needs.
