JQL for all child issues under an epic

Hi there,

There seem to be a few questions that have been asked along these lines already, but I've not seen an answer that will work for me so hoping the community can help :)

I have an epic:

  • PROJ-100

Which has several stories underneath it:

  • PROJ-101
  • PROJ-102

How do I structure the query so that I can list the children 101 and 102?   I'm trying to do this to pull a summary report into Confluence.

For clarity, there are no sub-tasks.

Hello @Mel Jensen 

Try the JQL as "Epic Link" = PROJ-100. This is similar to the previous suggestion by @Avinash Bhagawati _Appfire_ but without the quotes for the issue id.

KIndly share if this helps!!

Hi @Mel Jensen ,

You can try using "Epic Link" = "PROJ-100"


@Avinash Bhagawati _Appfire_  - I did try this, but it doesn't produce any results (I triple checked I was using the correct epic ID.

@Mel Jensen 

You can use the JQL query parentEpic = PROJ-100

Thanks @Sandesh Shetty I tried this but it only brings up the epic, and not a list of stories.

I have the same issue. Did you get it to work?
