Query two-levels hierarchy in Jira

Hello,

Can you please help me with Filter query, that is searching for all issues, that belong to the epics, which, in its turn, are children of one specific ticket of type Initiative?  

I can for example find all epics of the initiative with this query "Parent Link" in (initiative_id)" or to find all issues of epic with this query "Epic Link" in (epic_id)", but I don't understand how to put one query into another. It seems that JQL doesn't support such functionality.

Can you please give me some hints for this problem?

Thank you,

Natallia.

This unfortunately is not avaliable out of the box. JIRA doesn't provide any functions that allow you to search multiple levels at a time. Add-ons like Scriptrunner and JQL tricks do provide this ability however. 

Hi, just as follow-up, I found a way to query this with ScriptRunner, with the following query: (issueFunction in issuesInEpics(" 'Parent Link' ='InitId' ") OR "Parent Link" =InitId).

It returns all epics of the given Initiative, and also all stories of these epics.

Thanks,

Natallia.
