Hi @Narasimha Neelam

You'll need to nest a search within a search - this isn't usually possible based on normal JQL functions because when searching for parents / links it often limits it to one specific issue.

An alternative is to use a script application such as ScriptRunner - then you could do:

issueFunction in parentsOf("issuetype = Defect")
