Could you please provide the definition for following 'Link Issue' types
is duplicated by
is blocked by
is cloned by
is tested by a Test
these seem self-explanatory so I hope my input doesn’t simply seem to restate the names.
The link types are entirely configurable, they don't have fixed definitions. You could rename all the relationships to "Alice", "Bunny", "Playing card" and "Hedgehog" if you wanted to.
The list you've got there is mostly the English default set, and they've been written to try to be self-explanatory. You can see this by adding dummy issues to them to make sentences:
"is tested by" and "implements" are not default link types, they've been added by one of your admins (or possibly by an app an admin has added)
You'll notice a lot of these are paired - there's actually only one link type for "duplicate", "blocking", "cloning" and probably "implement" - the words you see in the sentence are trying to describe a directional relationship.
Blocks is the easiest example; from my point of view "I block you", and from your point of view, "Nic is blocking me" - same relationship, but a different description which tells you where you're looking from!
But, going back to the question, the short answer is "the meaning of the links is up to you" - your admins should set up the ones you find useful and name them clearly!
