Might be a bug, but also could be a configuration issue. The meatball menu, ie "..." on issues in our software development project doesn't have the "Created liked issue" item in the menu.
This is available in both Business projects and our Service Desk. Makes no sense that it's not there. Anyone have this issue?
Hello, I'm finding the same issue. I have the option to "Link", but I do not see a "Create Linked Issue" on a newly created Software Project.
I am able to Create Linked Issues from my Business Projects and Service Desk...
I checked my Permissions in the Software Project, and I am part of the group (it's our "everyone" group) that has the "Link Issues" permission. I did notice this line "Only useful if issue linking is turned on."
Am I missing one other place to turn on Linking?
Ah~ that makes sense. If you don't have various projects that are the different types, you wouldn't notice it ;)
In my case, we have a couple of business, and service desks, in addition to several software projects. Thanks for the link @Benjamin_Peikes ... even if it's a bit discouraging ;)
Interesting that the documentation specifically says it's for either service desk or for business projects. So... from Software projects should not be available at all https://confluence.atlassian.com/jiracoreserver073/linking-issues-861257339.html#Linkingissues-Createanewlinkedissuefromanexistingissueinaservicedeskorbusinessproject
Currently, this is as designed by Atlassian. Software projects do not have the option to "Create Linked Issue" due to the fact that cloning includes sprint data caused significant problems (dating back to 2012 it seems).
If you dig through the relevant open tickets for issue, you will find that Atlassian intends to review/revisit this issue late in 2019 but no commitment as to whether it will be added.
Here's a ticket from 2016 which has various linked tickets to both server and cloud. https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSWSERVER-13625
