With these optional parameters, you are able to link Jira issues with each other
Step 1: Add a PTC Create Issue Automation macro to your PTC Template or any Confluence page
Following the guide Create a Simple PTC Template
Step 2: Configure the PTC Create Issue Automation macro
First, fill in all the required fields.
Add the two optional parameters
(1) “Linked Issue Relationship”
(2) “Linked Issue Key”
Configure the two fields
With Placeholders: __Relationship__ and __Issue to be Linked__
With static values:
Relationship: Id of link type. For example: “10001“ (clones) or “10001:inward” (is cloned by)
Linked Issue Key: key of the issue to be linked. For example “PTC-21”
Save your page
Get the id of your issue link types via REST API
Step 3: Instantiate the page with the Tools-menu option or PTC Button
In the Replace Placeholder dialog, once you have selected a project and an issue type, all fields related to the PTC Create Issue Automation macro and your selection will appear.
The Relationship placeholder will be a drop down menu with all available options if not set as a static value
Select a Relationship
Enter a Valid Issue Key for the “Issue to be linked” placeholder
Open the newly created issue in Jira. Under Linked Issues, you can now see you issue relation.
