How to populate all the child issues (Tasks) in a confluence page at once by linking the story?

Is there a feature in Confluence where you can populate all the child Jira issues (Tasks or sub-tasks) automatically by linking the parent Jira issue (story or Task)? For example : Let's suppose you have a Jira story Named "XYZ Feature Implementation" and under that you create some 10s or 20s of Jira Tasks to accomplish the same. I want them to be populated in a confluence page (so that I can track all of them in a single page) and also the page should also update automatically once I create a new Jira Task under that same Jira Story. 

Any help will be highly appreciated on this.

Hi @Abhishek_Shukla 

Try the following JQL 

linkedIssue in (Ticket Id)

Replace the Ticket Id with the issue key of your story or Epic.  This will give you all linked issues to that particular story or the epic. 

You may  use the same JQL in the "Jira charts macro" in confluence to have all the child tickets associated with the particular parent ticket chosen. 

This will also take the newly linked ticket to the parent ticket, automatically every time when you load / Refresh the confluence page .

Hope this was helpful. 


Thanks @Haran_Kumar ! That worked like a charm.



can you check if this query will suffice your requirement?

issue in childIssuesOf("<issue Key>")

Thanks for the revert. It is showing 

Unable to find JQL function 'childIssuesOf(<XYZ-21>'
