Please help me on this.

i have tried with below scenarios.

issue in likedIssues("TEST-123")

but no luck.

The linkedIssues function is for linking to issues in the current JIRA. 

JIRA cannot have any understanding of the issues in other JIRAs because it does not know what might be at the end of a link to a web url.  To do what you're asking would require one JIRA to index another one, for which you'd need quite a lot of thought to go into some coding.
