How can I filter for sub-tasks of a specific issue type?

I have an issue type called "Non-standard IT Enhancement Request".  I want a filter that not only returns those issue types, but related sub-tasks of that specific issue type.  How can I do this?  

This filter returns ALL sub-tasks which I don't want:

project = ITSD AND issuetype in ("Non-standard IT Enhancement Request", Sub-task)

Hi Kyle,

Sadly you cannot achieve the desired search using standard features on Jira, you must go for a third-party app instead. Using i.e. JQL Booster Pack you can type the following:


Find "Non-standard IT Enhancement Request" issues within the "ITSD" project and their related subtasks, i.e.:

(project = ITSD AND type = "Non-standard IT Enhancement Request") OR issue IN subtasksOf(' project = ITSD AND type = "Non-standard IT Enhancement Request" ')

(*) Note that this is just an exaple, you must tune your query to fit your needs

Using this app you can also query other issues relations, check:




Hope this helps you to create awesome queries <3

Kind regards

Excellent, thanks @Jack Nolddor _Sweet Bananas_  I will check it out.

The "issue IN" didn´t work for me, but using "issueFunction IN" instead worked just fine!
