I would like to be able to display and sort by the number of links an issue has. Is there a way to do this? We would like to use this as a proxy for a priority. The more related issues (links) an issue has, the higher priority it is.
I don't think you can do this in off-the-shelf Jira.
I wrote a plugin to solve this ages ago which simply did the count as a "derived field". You could sort, search as numeric (e.g. more than 20 links) and so-on.
I'm afraid that even if I dug it up and published it, you couldn't use it in OnDemand because they don't allow plugins yet. There are some things you can do with JQL I believe, but they won't display or sort.
Was a solution found for this? I am trying to do this with the Misc Custom Fields plug-in where I have a calculated number field based on the number of linked tickets, but I am having issues with the formula counting the links. If anyone has done this, please let me know.
