How to update an existing linked issue in Jira using Scriptrunner

JH July 7, 2022


I found this script in the Adaptavist Library that creates a linked issue.

Is it possible to use a script to update the linked issue type? For an example TEST-1 "contains" TEST-2. We have a situation where we'd like to change "contains" to something else.

From what I found, there isn't a way in Jira Server to update these linkages. It looks like I have to delete and re-link them with the right linkage type instead. Wondering if there's a script  that can handle this instead.

Hi @JH 


You are right. You cannot edit link type. You can only create new one and delete old.
