Create custom JQL functions for JIRAs Cloud installation?

Hello every body,

I'm usin JIRA cloud instance. When I make a JQL query I need to display only parent issue.

for example:   project = TEST AND subtasks has summary = "sub-task  summary"

I know that there is a plugin for JIRA server which allow adding custom JQL functions but for JIRA cloud instance I don't know how I can process.

Would you have any idea ?   

Thanks in advance

Best regards

There is no JQL function extension point for JIRA Cloud so there are no add-ons that can add new JQL functions - you are stuck with what you have out of the box.

The only solution currently is to pull the issue data from JIRA via REST and then do a search on the client (which is a horrible thing to do really with regards to performance).

Thaks guys, I try ScriptRunner for cloud but It doesn't work it display all the time 

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

This question looks exceptionally similar to a previous question that you have asked: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/41452591

Thanks @Robert Massaioli.

 Yes because I don't know how I can use entityproperties to get only parent issues?

Would you have any propositions ?

I need to do something like 

issueFunction in parentsOf("project = TEST")   // plugin ScriptRunner

using entityProperties

Thanks in advance
