JQL: Kanban Board - Show only Tasks where SubTask != open Edited

Bratkartoffl Aug 04, 2017

Hello Community,

I am looking for a way to only show Tasks where all Sub-Tasks do not (!=) have status Open.

I can select Tasks by using: 

issuetype = Task  

But how can I access the Sub-Tasks of these Tasks?

JIRA doesn't support it out-of-the-box but if you have script runner plugin installed then you can easily do it using the JQL function

issueFunction in parentsOf("type = sub-task and status != 'open'") and type = Task

Seems like you are trying to find stale tasks that should be closed off because all of the sub-tasks are complete?

The only way to do this AFAIK is with an addon like Scriprunner where you can use "issuefunction" parameter. there are other threads in the Community that illustrate how this can be done.

The other solution is to use the REST API
