We recommend to hide the configured Link Type in the Dialog Issue > More > Links or in the Field Linked Issues (Using Link Schema’s. This feature is planned in the next version of this app).
In Case the end user can use the configured link, this option allows to sync automatically the Custom Field after any Link change.
