Scriptrunner getInwardIssues method returns null

Hello there,

I am trying to get linked Issue of one certain Issue through scriptrunner. What I get in variable inwardIssues is NULL.

List inwardIssues = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager().getLinkCollectionOverrideSecurity(issue).getInwardIssues("is Child of");

I test it on issue which is linked with another issue - relationship between them is of type "Hierarchy".

Do you have any idea what might be wrong and why getInwardIssues method returns NULL object?

This is only part of the code. Global view is to get (copy) value of the custom field of linked Issue (Parent) to this certain Issue (Child). This is not a sub-task!

Thank you!
