How do I get the recursive children and grandchildren from an initiative? Edited

How do I get the recursive children and grandchildren from an initiative? I have several Sagas and each saga has several initiatives. I only need to get the entire list of issues linked to one of the initiatives to show in a portfolio plan. 

I have tried issueFunction in linkedIssuesOfRecursive("Key = APB-2") 

and also issueFunction in linkedIssuesOfAllRecursive("Key = APB-2") 


Neither gives me the right results. It pulls issues linked to other initiatives like APB-12 or APB-3. Note that both APB-12 and APB-3 are linked to the same parent saga as APB-2.

All I am trying to get is the epics, stories, tasks and subtasks from the APB-2, so I can display the tree in the portfolio plan.

Hi @SR 

Are you looking for a view like the following:

@Deepanshu Natani something similar. The above shows the status. I am looking for the parent child hierarchy like the pic below.


Do you mind also sharing the query to your view?



Hi @SR 

The screenshot I shared above was displaying data using an add-on/ application called "Links Explorer Traceability & Hierarchy".

More details for this application/ add-on is available here:

The default Jira does not have feature to display the hierarchy that you need.

You need to use one of the add-ons like the above mentioned one.

Hi Deepanshu, I have access to Portfolio and I am trying to get this view in Portfolio. But it has some constraints on the number of projects (max 100) and number of issues (max 5000).

The query is where I am having problems, not displaying the results. The results include  children from both ABP-2 and ABP-15 even though I am asking only for APB-2 in the below query - 

issueFunction in linkedIssuesOfRecursive("Key = APB-2") 


Expected results: 

ABP-2, ABP-10, SOC-34, SOC-39, SOC-50


Actual results: 

ABP-2, ABP-10, SOC-34, SOC-39, SOC-50, ABP-15, CLR-10, CLR-15


What am I doing wrong? How can I just get the expected results in Jira? 

I recreated the portfolio and it works fine now with the right hierarchy. Thread can be closed.
