Hi  @McKesey, David 

Greetings of the day!

There isn't a dedicated list within the Jira, you may refer the Atlassian Document for smae:
https://support.atlassian.com/jira-software-cloud/docs/link-issues/ 

Here's the four default link types:

  1. Relates To / Relates To: This is a general-purpose link that allows you to connect issues with a flexible relationship. You can define the meaning of this link in your specific context.
  2. Blocks / Is Blocked By: This link type indicates that one issue (blocker) is preventing progress on another issue (blocked). This is helpful for tracking dependencies and resolving roadblocks.
  3. Duplicates / Is Duplicated By: This link is used to connect issues that represent the same problem or request. It helps avoid duplicate work and ensures teams focus on addressing unique issues.
  4. Clones / Is Cloned By: This link type is used when one issue is copied to create a similar but distinct issue. This can be useful for creating variations of a core issue or adapting it for different contexts.

Remember, these are the default options.
Jira administrators can also create custom link types to suit your specific project needs, you may follow the same document for the creation of new link type:

https://support.atlassian.com/jira-cloud-administration/docs/configure-issue-linking/



Hope this will help.

Thanks,
Ankit Srivastava

Sorry, the questions should be [ What are the 'out-of-the-box' "Linked Issues"?
