Can an advanced search bring all of the hierarchy from just the roadmap ticket number

I need to run a query that would bring back all tickets that were in the hierarchy structure to a roadmap item from a single search.

I have the following structure, Roadmap > Epic > Story > Task > Subtask

I can obtain all the epics from entering the RM search and also if I put the stories in too this can work but this means constantly monitoring for new epics and stories

So what I need is a query where I simply put the roadmap number in and it fires every ticket under that from epic to subtask.


I tried this

issuekey in childIssuesOf("ABC-12345")

However the error states unable to find the JQL function.

Hello @stephen_hockey 

Welcome to the community.

Currently there is not a native JQL function that will return all parents or all children up/down the extended issue hierarchy available when using Advanced Roadmaps. There is a change request for that feature:


Also note that childIssuesOf function should be replaced with 



I got that info from this article.

portfolioChildIssuesOf works a treat!

Hi @stephen_hockey and welcome to the community!

You're close.  That JQL is specific to Data Center/Server version.  You'll want this instead:

issue in portfolioChildIssuesOf("ABC-12345")

Thanks Mark - looks like I'd hit the bar :)  just tried yours and it works perfect - thanks very much!
