JQL query for filtering all subtasks of an issue


Does anyone know how to write a JQL query to get all subtasks and linked issues to a Story/Task?




9 answers

Can you try 

parent = "ISSUEKEY" OR issue in linkedIssues(ISSUEKEY)

Replace the issue key with the issue ID of your story or subtask.

Both functions dont exist in standard Jira.

mhm ur right. I wonder why it doesnt work for my Instance then. . . 

works in my parts, thanks a lot!

Hello @Monika Brandström

Below JQL-query worked for me, giving me all subtasks and linked issues to my AC-15 issue:

parent = AC-15 OR key in linkedIssues("AC-15")

What above query says: Fetch all issues that have AC-15 as a parent or whose key is linked with AC-15


How does it work for you?

Hope it helps and good luck!

Thank you for all your answers. Parent in and linkedIssues was the solution for me.

 JQL Search Extensions for Jira & reports plugin have rich queries which are very useful. You can either use scriptrunner  or   JQL Search Extensions for Jira & reports plugin.


I am using  JQL Search Extensions for Jira & reports plugin and its really amazing.


Following query will be helpful in your case.

It will return all linked issues and sub tasks linked with JQL-3 or JQL-5


issue in linkedBy(JQL-3, JQL-5)


you can find more documentation here

issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf("Key=JIRA-100") or issueFunction in subtasksOf("key=JIRA-100")

thanks for this one

In Jira 8, 

below works fine

Search Issues ==> Advanced ==> In the query field

parent = <ticket no>

I used this query and it works :)

project = "ProjectName AND issuetype not in standardIssueTypes()

@Monika Brandström You could use a plugin like this one, it works for me!

Once installed, the query should be something similar to:

As far as i know there is no JQL in standard Jira for that. You need to get a Plug In.
