Option to link one Jira issue to another is missing from "More" dropdown

We are running Jira 6.2.6 and Agile - our users seem to have lost the ability to link Jira issues (possibly since the upgrade from Jira 6.0.6/Agile The "Link" option is not shown on the More> dropdown menu and typing the keyboard shortcur "." followed by Link only shows "Epic Link" as an option.

Can anyone suggest some troubleshooting steps - I've exhausted every avenue I can think of!!

Thanks in advance, Mark.

Fixed it!! The permission for linking issues in the default permission scheme was set to "Group (Users)", but all our users are members of "jira-users" - adding that group explicitly to the link permission has solved the problem. I still can't work out how/when this behaviour changed, but I guess it doesn't matter much now :)

Hi Mark,

Do you use JIRA standalone or OnDemand?
Also, have you checked these users permissions?
