Help searching for subtask and issue types with different status'

I'm trying to search for all subtasks with the status of Open only when the standard issue type is in the status of Testing, is that possible? I need to show how many subtasks have been created with or without a testing subtask (we have a custom field identifier to identify which subtask is a test task or not).

To better clarify, I need to show all open children tickets (subtasks) when the parent ticket (standard issue/non subtask) has a status of Testing.

You need to use a add-on for that. Based on my experience two add-on will do tha work:

Look at the following example in their documentation:

The other add-on is JQL J-Tricks
Look at the JQL Functions: subtaskIssuesFromQuery()
Let me know if you need more details how  to use those functions.

Hi Nicole,

beside what Peter mentioned there is another plugin (Script Runner) where you could use following query:

status = open and issuefunction in subtaskOf("status = Testing and issuetype =<YourParentIssueType>")



Hi Nicole,

If you are generating reports Intelligent Reports can easily handle this kind of nested query. You can just point and click to set it up, no scripting or API to learn.
