Selecting multiple issues for linking using filters is missing in Jira 5.2.


Issue selector option is missing in Jira5.2 which was in Jira5.0. Is there any way we can get this feature in the Jira5.2? Please let us know.

Thanks in advance.

it seems that option was removed and given advance search and link option, check the following document for issue linking on jira 5.2

Hi Prasad,

Thanks for the reply, Yes I have gone through the documentation. But we need that feature. Is there any way i can get that feature back? tricks/tweaks



i don't think that feature will be back, they have replaced with advanced search option to select issues.

search for an issue ----> Advanced Search ---> enter the JQL query and select the issue.

i tried above procedure but i can able to select only one issue at a time.

so i suggest to raise a feature request with atlassian at

Thanks Prasad! We'll do the same.
