Linked Issue Field

This page is about JEP Cloud. Using Jira On-Prem? Click the On-Prem button above.

The Linked Issue Field is a feature that allows you to display specific information from linked issues within your Jira instance. It provides a way to establish connections between different issues and retrieve relevant data from those linked issues.

By creating a Linked Issue Field, you can choose the type of link you want to focus on, such as "blocks" or "reviewed by." Then, you can specify which field or custom field from the linked issue you want to display. This could be any information you find useful, such as the assignee, status, priority, or any other field available in Jira.

With the Linked Issue Field in place, whenever you view an issue, you can conveniently see the relevant information from the linked issues displayed within that field. This feature enhances the visibility and context of related issues, enabling you to have a comprehensive understanding of the connections and dependencies between different tasks, subtasks, or related items within your project.
