JQL for child issues


I want to list all child issues assigned to a certain team. Is this possible? Is it possible with scriptrunner plugin?

As step 2 I want to list parents who has child issues assigned to certain team, to create a KanBan board with Team swimlanes.

Any help appreciated!

I found a solution, thought I'd share if anyone else has the same need.

Using the plugin "JQL Search Extensions" (not affiliated in any way) and the following filter did the trick for me:
issue in parentsOfIssuesInQuery("issuetype = Epic and Team = 10")

If anyone has an alternative without using a plugin please share.

Hi @David

Solved: JQL Child issues of initiative (

Thanks for sharing Curt!

Unfortunately the provided solutions don't work on cloud. Got some ideas from it though, so I will keep investigating and share any results here.

Try something like this @David 

issue in portfolioChildIssuesOf(ABC-123)and "Team[Team]" = 123 

I'm on cloud and it works for extension required. 

Yes you're right it works. Will only list child issues of one Initiative though. Also useful, and for now probably the best you can do without any plugins, however not solving my need completely, since I want to list all Initiatives related to a Team.
