jira permission to unlink issues


I am using issue linking (in jira 5.2.11). How can I disable delete this link button on the view screen? (image below)

Actually, the reason is that there is no settings in the permission scheme to allow/restrict users to delete issue links.

The only permission type is link issues.

Where is the permission for delete links?

Hi Bahar!

Can you say, what configuration do you use finally for that?

Hi friends!

can you help us, what is configuration finally?

For those still wondering what the final configuration is, here is what worked for me:

Property Key: jira.permission.link.user

property Value: jira.permission.delete.user=username


Of course you can use group or projectrole or whatever works for you.
