how to limit link type according to issue type ?

Hi all,

I would like to limit linking capabilities according to the issue type :
If I'm viewing an issue type A, i want to be able to link with another (existing !) issue with the link type A only.
And if I'm viewing an issue type B, i want to be able to link with another issue with the link type B only.

Is it possible in Jira ? Or is there a plugin to do so ?

PS : I know Exocet plugin can add links to create new issues from an issue, according to its type and / or status, but I want this specification for link with existing issues, and not only new issues.

Thank you.

Dear Bastien,

as far as I know, there is currently no way of doing this.

If you, like us, need this feature, tell Atlassian by voting for this issue:

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-9634

This related issue may be worth voting as well:

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-16325

Right now, I think you could only completely disable issue linking for this project and then create links through the workflow:

Hope that helps,

Jonathan
