The info is in issue.fields.parent in issues of type sub-issue, such as Sub-task

 jql = "project = MYPROJ and type = Sub-task"
issues = jira.search_issues(jql)"Found first %s subtasks" % len(issues))
for issue in issues:
print "Parent %s of subtask %s" % (issue.fields.parent, issue.key)

Try the issue.getParent call.

It doesn't work, The object has no attribute called getParent, Does it work with certain version of Jira library or do you the api call ? 

It's the API call - I'd expect any python library to expose it, as it's pretty fundamental.


Did you get any way to achieve this ? or anyone can give a suggestion on this ?

I didn't manage to get from python Jira library. I've used native REST call. 

Not sure it helps:

in the instance I'm working on it is the field:


I don't now, whether this is a reserved field by atlassian, or it's a matter of implementation.

I took an Issue I knew it's a Sub-Task an knew its parent key. Made a rest-call in Browser and searched for the key in the resulting json :)
