Hi @Kaushal Patel 

In case you're still looking to do this - can I confirm the need?

  • Is it to see Initiatives which have child Epics, or Initiatives with parent Epics?
  • Is the Epic which would be in a specific Project?

Could you also please confirm if you have any JQL extension Apps, like Scriptrunner? And/or if you have Automation for Jira?


yeah this is still needed we only have automation for jira


want all initiatives with child epic from certain project

Hi @Kaushal Patel 

To do this, you either need...

  1. The data available on the Initiative level (i.e Has Children = Yes/No)
  2. A method of sub-querying between the two hierarchical levels

Option (2) requires an App, but Option (1) might be possible using:

  • A Custom Field - eg. a Checkbox field
  • Automation for Jira


The rule might work something like this:

  • If Parent Link is added to...
  • Locate the Parent Issue...
  • And check the Field "Has Children" to CHECKED/TRUE

And then some method to remove it again, if all children are removed.

This metadata is then on an Initiative level, and could be referred to in JQL!


Do you think this is workable in your instance?


i am not admin and don't want to add another custom field, isn't there out of the box for this jql search for this ?

Hi @Kaushal Patel 

Unfortunately there isn't.

The other alternative aside from Automation is to use an App which extends the functionality of JQL, like Scriptrunner - if you have an App like this, it will likely be possible to get these results.
