Been ~5 years to this query and this feature has still not been added to JIRA.

Is there a way to get this from the Jira DB ?

I found the internal links in the JiraIssueLinks and IssueLinkType tables, but it does not have the Remote Links/Web link.

If your link is fairly consistent, you can use the "text ~" operator.

For example, we are linking to an old archived board in another instance of Jira. My query is:

Project = "EMPD" and text ~"https://jira". Hope this helps!

I so wanted this to work but searching text ~ "https://[servername]" returned no results for me (Server v 8.13.1)

The link below mentions you can use the rest api @ rest/api/latest/issue/[id]/remotelink

which is a bit kludgy since you have to iterate over a list of items, but seems to work in a pinch

hm, not sure why, but the text~ thingie doesn't work out properly and it misses a bunch of issues. And it makes a difference, if i need to query the API for all issues, or only for them where we have any links.

Hello  Ashwin,

I hope you are having a nice day.

Unfortunately, it's not possible to run JQL queries to search on Web links of issues, however, we have requested this option with our development team already:

The ability to query remote link data via JQL

Feel free to vote and watch the suggestion to increase its priority and also receive notifications about any updates.

For now, there are two options you can use to achieve your need:

1 - Add the web link to a text custom field once the issue is linked, so you can use the JQL query to search on the custom field.

2 - sign-up for ScriptRunner plugin and use the parameter linkedIssuesOfRemote to search for Web links, as described in the section Remote Issue Links of the documentation below:

Scriptrunner - Scripted JQL

Let me know if this information helps.

Hello

Looking for the same thing, we started using weblinks thinking we could do something with that but I am unable to search on this field or export this field in CSV (we use this field to link to documents and want to export all the issues's web links in a CSV to send to our client so they have the URLs to the documents handy)

Scriptrunner does not support linkedIssuesOfRemote on Jira Cloud instances...

Any other possibility ?

Thanks for the suggestion 1.
But it is still a bit disappointing to see this feature missing.
All we need is a possibility to search for remote link titles / description (there is no need to validate / understand the remote link).

We are also facing the same problem (using jira cloud). Thank you for the hint, we can avoid spending unnecessary time for searching.

Searching web links is important for us too. It makes the whole weblinks feature a little bit redudant if we would have to duplicate the link into the text of the issue otherwise.
