Is it possible to link remote JIRA issue during issue creation

Hello All,

I want to add Linking Issue field on Create Issue screen. We are able to link issues from same jira instance. but our requirement is to link remote jira issue on Create Issue Screen.

Is it possible?

Hi @Prashant Mali,

To create this type of link, your JIRA system administrator should have configured fully reciprocal application links between your JIRA site and the other JIRA site containing the issue(s) you want to link to.

  1. Open the issue you wish to link to another issue.
  2. Select More > Link to display the Link dialog box.
  3. Ensure that the JIRA Issue item is selected at the left of the dialog box.
    • This option will not be available if your JIRA system administrator has not configured an application link between your JIRA site and the remote JIRA site.
    • If, after selecting this option, you are prompted for authorization, you may be required to log in to the remote JIRA site, which will allow your JIRA site to access the remote JIRA site on behalf of your account on the remote JIRA site.
       This behavior means the application links configured between your JIRA site and the remote JIRA site use OAuth authentication.
  4. If your JIRA site is connected to multiple remote JIRA sites, choose the relevant JIRA site from the Server drop-down list.
  5. Choose the type of link to be created from the This issue drop-down list.
  6. Type the Issue key of the issue on the remote JIRA site that you want to link to. Alternatively, you can search for issues on the remote JIRA site by clicking the search for an issue link, which opens the Find JIRA issues popup.
     You can link to any issue on the remote JIRA site to which you have access on that site.
  7. Select the Create reciprocal link checkbox to create the complementary link on the remote issue you are linking to, back to your issue. For example, if you create a blocks link type to a remote issue, the reciprocal link generated on the remote issue will be a is blocked by link type back to your local issue.
  8. Optional: Add a Comment to describe why you are linking these issues.
  9. Click the Link button at the bottom of the dialog.
