jira - JQL search "Issue Links" if it contains a specific text Edited

Is there a JQL to search the "issue Links" section of an issue by if specific text exists there?  (or do you need to specify a link)?

Not sure I follow. You can do the following which returns the issues that have links of a given type…

issueLinkType = "is blocked by" 

thanks for the response.  We also have confluence so we asked the users to link the page to their issue.  I just want to find how many issues are attached to the page.  I thought I could do this by seeing if the "Issues Link" section of the page has that page in that section.

I hope that clarifies.

I don’t think that’s possible.

Is there a way to search using JQL if "Issue Links" section contains a specific text(this could be the text of the wiki article) or an identifier?

Not that I am aware of.

Hmm is there a way to find if what are the child issues of an issue?

With standard JQL you can only get a list of issues with remote links and export them to Excel for further processing. This works if you want to do a one-off analysis.

Standard JQL doesn't easily allow it but the results can be quickly found using our professional indexing service:

After you install the app you can simply search:

remoteLinkTitle="My Page"

You may want to check out the docs as well.

I hope this helps!
