How do I get the Parent Issue Script Field to show Initiative (2nd Level) on tickets?


I'm using one of the new scriptrunner canned scripts, called 'Show Parent Issue in Hierarchy'. My goal is to have a field that shows the Initiative that a story relates to.

Our Portfolio hierarchy is: Value Stream --> Initiative --> Epic --> Story --> Sub-task

When I choose 'Value Stream' as the Target Issue Type, it works, showing me the value stream above the issue I'm looking at. When I choose Initiative (or Epic), I get nothing back. See attached image for setup... help?

Did you ever find a solution to this?

Nope. My workaround was to use scriptrunner jql syntax like this in filters, reports, agile board etc...:

issuefunction in linkedIssuesOf("issuefunction in portfolioChildrenOf('key = ABC-123')", "is Epic of")

Note: ABC-123 is the Initiative in this example


I have the same issue. Except that the Epic is displayed. I can't display the Initiative.


Thanks. I guess that solves the reporting side.


No easy way of reporting in a way to show the initiative summary in the results. The parent link field only returns the key in exported issue reports.

I guess a custom script field is the only way? IE recurse the hierarchy?
