using a filter in a jql function

I like to find all parent links of stories in the actual sprint. First step is searching for stories in the actual sprint: 

project = "xyz" AND issuetype = Story AND sprint in openSprints()

Bring back a list of stories. I created a filter (MyFilter) for this jql and try to do something like 

project = xyz and issue in parentIssuesOf("MyFilter")

 But it does not work. Seems parentIssuesOf expecting exactly 1 key. Are there any workarounds for that?

You would need to use a plugin like Enhanced Search for Jira.

Hi @Markus Schlayer

I’m Charlotte, a support engineer at Appfire and I’m here to help you.

Unfortunately, using vanilla JQL, you’ll not be able to do it dynamically.

In the app where my team works, JQL Search Extensions for Jira, you can use this query to find the parents of stories in the actual sprint:

issue in epicsOfChildrenInQuery("project = XYZ AND type = story AND sprint in openSprints()") 

Please contact our support if you have any other questions about this query.

We’ll be happy to help you!

Best regards,
