Updating issue links

What happens to issue links if the JIRA instance is relocated? Do they still work or is there any easy way to update them to point to the new location?

Hi Petri,

Are you talking about the whole instance of JIRA moved to a new server? In this case, it will still work.

Hi Bhushan,

Yep, I'm talking about the whole instance being moved. So the links will still work - great!

Make sure you do this on a test/staging environment when you are dealing with production instances

Hi again,

I just noticed that I was not specific... I actually meant the issue linking between two instances, not linking within one instance. So if the other instance is relocated then the links will break up, right?
