can you use issue.function in Jira cloud?

Deleted user Mar 04, 2019

Trying to find epics with open stories across multiple projects. Would normally use issue.function but getting permission error in jira cloud?

Hi Dodger,

I am not on the Jira team, but I will try to help.

Can you elaborate on where you are trying to do this?  Are you creating a filter with JQL?

Deleted user Mar 04, 2019

We have Jira Cloud. In my previous role we had Jira on premise. There used to use the issue.function functionality to identify Epics with open stories.

When I try to use it I get a permissions error?

Hi Jay,

I'm afraid this isn't possible in OnDemand. For the download version there's a plugin called Script Runner. And do stuff like:

issueFunction in subtasksOf("project = XXX AND issuetype = Task AND status = Closed")

But I'm afraid that isn't possible on the OnDemand version (yet).

project = PLAY and issueFunction in subtasksOf("statuscategory != done")


get response

Field 'issueFunction' does not exist or you do not have permission to view it.
