Is it possible to enable reciprocal links by default?

When linking issues across JIRA (or Confluence) instances, is it possible to have reciprocal linking checked by default?

Hi Patrick,

Out of box JIRA, does not have an option for you to enable this by default. The feature request is JRASERVER-65283. Please do vote on the feature request.

This option might work, you can inject Javascript into JIRA's announcement banner and input the attribute from

<input type="checkbox" class="checkbox" id="create-reciprocal" name="createReciprocal" value="true">


<input type="checkbox" class="checkbox" id="create-reciprocal" name="createReciprocal" value="true" checked="">

You can take a look at How to hide the create issue link from issues dropdown and How to Change Text Box Length on a Screen UI in JIRA to learn on how to inject script.

I hope that this helps. Cheers.
