Link issues across different projects

Harry Kha Aug 21, 2013

I was wondering if anyone could help me out with this question. I'm trying to figure out if there is a way to link issues from one project to another. An example would be that I create issue A in project A. I then create a separate issue, issue B in project B and want to link issue B to issue A in project A.

Is that possible. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards

yes, if you have permission to see issues in both projects you can do this. Go to issue A-1 and and simply link (More--> Link) it with issue B-2 (type the Issue key or search for that issue)

When the issues are linked, what can then be seen from the linked issue?   Can you only view the status via the dashboard?   

Other questions would be:

Can I modify/add comments on the issues I've linked TO from my Issue in my project?  Or can I only do that if I log into the other server and have access to the project?

Does the linking to another server use a user licenses?  I am using a licenses on my server, so in my project and issue I create a link to another server/project/issue (I have issue linking configured and turned on).  Does that use a licenses on the other server?

Udo has it right, but I would add that you need to check that linking is enabled in the admin section as well.

That is a good point Nic. I forgot about that. Beside that and what I already wrote you need to have the link issue permission in order to link issues

Sorry for the typo, it should have read like this:
