Which addin or jira feature automatically creates (unwanted) links between issues ?

I have numerous (few hundred) issues which have been 'auto' linked between each other

This issue has to be done before xxx

This issue has to be done after xxx

I am pretty sure this has been caused by an addin, but which one ?




Gantt ?

Hi Gregory,

There exists a plugin for such kind of actions


maybe this one.

Thanks. Interesting addin!

In fact I was trying to find which addin has created these unwanted links which make no sense.

I was evaluating Gantt project and Gantt Plugin and I think one of them was the culprit of making lots of changes in my issues.

Anyone has any more info and how to rollback ?

Maybe groovy?

def findLinkedChildrenOfIssue(issueId) {
  def issueLinks = issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks(issueId)

  def subElements= issueLinks.findAll { 
it.getIssueLinkType().getName() == "<link type you are lookin for>"
  }.collect {


you can then delete the link types from the parent and the child issues.
