When I create a remote link to an issue by API call exactly by the example https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/jira/platform/rest/v3/api-group-issue-remote-links/#api-rest-api-3-issue-issueidorkey-remotelink-get-example then the remote link is not visible. I have found that it's not visible when the application.type is filled. Maybe the link is invisible if no application of the given type is registered? Is it a bug or does it has some purpose?
It seems like Jira 5 server displays remote links always, e.g. see this video tutorial (remote link with application type at the end) and the doc Creating custom renderers for remote issue links says: "if there is no custom renderer for the application type of the link, a default renderer is used."
After all, we find this behaviour useful because we may create invisible link (which cannot be changed by a user) and exploit it in our synchronization script. I would like to know, if this is an intended behaviour, i.e. it would not change in the future.
