It's perfectly possible but you will need to write some code.


def issueLinkManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager()
issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks( {issueLink ->
    // filter on
    out << issueLink.destinationObject.getKey()


Matthew, just in case you're interested in Inward links as well (eg. "Is blocked by" vs "Blocks")

add this

issueLinkManager.getInwardLinks( {issueLink ->
     out << issueLink.sourceObject.getKey()


I tried adding both of these to my template but it just outputs all of the above as plain text when the mail is sent...

Do I need to add any additional formatting to these?


That was just the code. Here is what you put in the template. I'll leave it to you to include the summary etc:

...Other text...

  out << "Linked Issues\n\n"

issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks( {issueLink ->
    // filter on
    out <<  issueLink.issueLinkType.outward << " " << issueLink.destinationObject.getKey() << "\n"


The following will provide output like:
Blocks: In Progress [PR-198] Customer can export order history to Excel

issueLinkManager.getOutwardLinks( {issueLink ->
   def d = issueLink.destinationObject
    out <<  issueLink.issueLinkType.outward << ": " << d.getStatus() << " [" << d.getKey() << "] " << d.getSummary << "\n"
