Updating the timetracking / Original Hours field **and** finding links with REST 5.0.2 / JIRA CLI

First, I'm trying to use the JIRA CLI to update the timetracking field, but don't seem to be able to do so. I'm about to shift to spawning CURL with the appropriate JSON, but looking around, I don't see an example of that. Is it that the timetracking field can't be updated in this way?

Second, I can't "get" any link information using the CLI either - I just seem to be able to set it. I'm looking for a CURL approach to this as well...same problem. *ugh*

Can anybody point me in the right direction?

Sometimes, you just have to ask the same question a different way...

Because I got the first answer when I asked it here: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/54139/is-it-possible-to-set-originalestimate-via-curl

Is that because it's recommended to rephrase a question if it has been long since you create it and you haven't had any reply ;)

I recommend to always ask only one question per post. I'm sure you'll get answers faster

Assuming you want to search for issues linked to a certain issue you can use the search rest method. http://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/5.0/#id202584 Please check http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Advanced+Searching#AdvancedSearching-linkedIssues how to search for linked issues
