not sure yet if this solution works out of the box with Jira 4 but you could add a custom field provided by the Jira issue linker and searcher plugin ( and use the value of this field using $issue.getCustomFieldValue(...) EDIT: The plugin does not work with JIRA 4+ but again the groovy script runner could help here: just create a new scripted field, which enumerates all links. There is already an example at that checks if a linked issue is not resolved yet
