Hi @Magnus Edlund - The parent field is for sub-tasks of an issue.  If the Parent_Issue-XYZ is an Epic issue type and the children are part of that Epic then you would use the Epic Link field.  If they are related by a standard Issue Link then you would use LinkedIssues().  

Hope this helps.

It looks like you want to search EPIC with their child stories and their child sub tasks. 


You can use following query to get the results by using the plugin : JQL Search Extensions for Jira & reports


 after installing the above plugin , please use following query it will return you all parents with their child's.


issue in allIssuesInEpic(your parent issue id's which is epic id)
for example

issue in allIssuesInEpic(epic-12, epic-13)

it will return all issues belongs to epic id 12 and 13


you can find more documentation here
