Get Initiatives where my team has a task that is a child of the Initiative

Dag Atle Stentad March 14, 2024

Hello Community!

I want to list up Initiatives where my team has a task that is a child of the Initiative (either as an epic or as a task within the epic). Is it possible to solve this with JQL (without installing custom plugins)?

If standard JQL isn't sufficient, could we utilize Automate instead? For instance, we could automate the updating of a custom text field within the initiative issue, consolidating all teams associated with the Initiative (both epics and tasks within the epic). This automation rule should be triggered whenever there are changes to the "Team" field of any child.

If this approach is viable, I could then filter out the initiatives using the query issuetype=Initiative AND "InitiativeTeams[Paragraph]" ~ "10567745d-97e6-47bb-33h3-510469b17790" (where the ID represents my team).

Thank you for the help 😀

Hello @Dag Atle Stentad 

There is no native JQL solution for what you want. The work-around you thought of should work though I haven't tried to work out all the details of the best way to actually implement the rule. I think it might be something like this (which I haven't tested)...
