Scriptrunner omitting linked issue type in linkedIssuesOfAllRecursive


I am attempting to create a scripted field using a JQL Search.


Using the scriptrunner linkedIssuesOfAllRecursive I can find all linked issues for any task or subtask.


The issue I am having is when I get to release issues, which can be linked to multiple tasks and from there they get to more User Requests.  How can I omit the 'is released by' link type from my recursive linked issues search?

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.web.bean.PagerFilter
import groovy.xml.MarkupBuilder

def writer = new StringWriter()
def xml = new MarkupBuilder(writer)
def user = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.getLoggedInUser()
def issueMgr = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(IssueManager.class)

String jqlSearch = "(issueFunction in linkedIssuesOfAllRecursive(\"key=" + issue.getKey() + "\", \"clones\") or issueFunction in linkedIssuesOfAllRecursive(\"key=" + issue.getKey() + "\", \"is cloned by\")) and project = \"User Requests\" "
SearchService searchService = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(SearchService.class)

SearchService.ParseResult parseResult = searchService.parseQuery(user, jqlSearch)
if (parseResult.isValid()) {

def searchResult =, parseResult.getQuery(), PagerFilter.getUnlimitedFilter())

def issues = searchResult.issues.collect {issueMgr.getIssueObject(}


issues.each{ issueLink ->

def linkedIssue = ((Issue) issueLink)
td{ a(href:"" + linkedIssue.key.toString(), linkedIssue.key.toString()) }

return (writer.toString())


The original code did not utilize 'clones' or 'is cloned by', this fails when I have an issue that is a subtask, or an issue that has an epic that has a linked user request.
