Try the issue.getParent call.

It doesn't work, The object has no attribute called getParent, Does it work with certain version of Jira library or do you the api call ? 

It's the API call - I'd expect any python library to expose it, as it's pretty fundamental.

Guys,

Did you get any way to achieve this ? or anyone can give a suggestion on this ?

I didn't manage to get from python Jira library. I've used native REST call.

The info is in issue.fields.parent in issues of type sub-issue, such as Sub-task

 jql = "project = MYPROJ and type = Sub-task"
issues = jira.search_issues(jql)
log.info("Found first %s subtasks" % len(issues))
for issue in issues:
print "Parent %s of subtask %s" % (issue.fields.parent, issue.key)
