Syncing epic link data via REST API from JIRA 8.3.2

I am syncing data from a JIRA instance (currently 8.3.2 in my case) into a database. I'm running into trouble when trying to maintain epic link data. There are a couple of pain points, which together make me feel like I'm running against a wall here...

1) When loading an issue, the issuelinks list is always empty. I haven't been able to figure out how the epic link issuelink might be goaded into being loaded through the element. This would be the sanest way to get the epic link information. 

2) When an issue is created, webhook calls for issuelink and issue creation arrive in the wrong order -- issuelink comes first, issue second. Is there anything I can do to influence this, even though this would be a suboptimal solution.

I don't understand what are you trying to get.

If you could explain your problem in a little more detail maybe i could try  to help you

I show you the way jira database stores those datas in case it could help you.

This is the list of linktypes in my jira


and the issuelink table looks like this


Though you have a customfield called 'epic link', that information doesn't appear in the customfieldvalue table of jira (but it can be taken via API)

Hope this gives you any clue
