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?

Unfortunately, this permission (Link Issues) rules both adding and deleting links.

You can do such workaround.

1. Create a plugin of web-panel type and put it into View Issue page.

2. In the velocity template of this plugin write a JS function:

<script type="text/javascript">
//your function here...

3. In your script find all <a> elements like this:

&lt;a class="icon icon-delete" title="Delete this link" id="delete-link_remote-10000" href="/secure/DeleteRemoteIssueLink.jspa?id=12100&amp;amp;remoteIssueLinkId=10000&amp;amp;atl_token=TOKEN"&gt;&lt;span&gt;Delete this link&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/a&gt;

and remove them.
