Am I able, using JQL, to see a list of tasks which are NOT associated with another task?

I'm tidying up the backlog and want to make sure that all of the tasks are 'related to' stories. I'm using tasks not subtasks because I don't know if having a story get dragged through a lot of sprints is going to work for us in terms of tracking. 

So, I'm looking for a way to query on 'related to' is EMPTY. Anyone know of a way?

Hi @Elspeth Hinde 


May be you can use this :

issueLinkType not in ("relates to")

 It will show all task with no issue link "relates to".


Hope this helps.

Thanks @Mohamed Benziane - this works! You're a star! 

You welcome. It was a pleasure.
