Jira Listener is unable to read Jira issue links from projects that are migrated.

Jira Listener is unable to read Jira issue links from projects that are migrated(imported from another jir ainstance). After issuing reindexing, listener is able to read issue links for some of these issues from migrated project but again- not all.

Can anyone help?

Technical details:

Jira Listener is unable to read Jira issue links from projects that are migrated(imported).
I use the following code to read issue links from jira listener to read issue links.
Apparently, jira listener is able to read issue links for issues that are created manually.
However, for issues that are migrated as a part of jira import, listener is not able to read issue links.
Indexing Jira fixed this problem for some issues while in case of other issues, Listener is still not able to read issue links.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

LinkCollection linkCollection = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager().getLinkCollection(issue, issue.getReporter());
Set<IssueLinkType> linkTypes = linkCollection.getLinkTypes();

if(linkTypes!=null ){
for (Iterator<IssueLinkType> iterator1 = linkTypes.iterator(); iterator1.hasNext()
{
IssueLinkType linkType = iterator1.next();
LOG.info("linktype :"+linkType.getName());

if(linkType.getName().equals(linkTypeName)){

// If inward linked issue is found, do something
List<Issue> issueLinks = null;
if(linkTypeName.equals(LINK_TYPE_BLOCKS))

{ issueLinks=linkCollection.getInwardIssues(linkType.getName()); LOG.info("read inward issues for links of type blocks"); }

else if(linkTypeName.equals(LINK_TYPE_DUPLICATE))

{ issueLinks=linkCollection.getOutwardIssues(linkType.getName()); LOG.info("read outward issues for links of type duplicate "); }

else

{ issueLinks=linkCollection.getInwardIssues(linkType.getName());//default case LOG.info("read inward issues for all other types"); }

} else

{ LOG.info("No Issue Links of type :"+linkType.getName()+" are present for this issue"); }


}
