"parent = MDC-27"
Should return values for "I have an issue MDC-27 which has a child issue of MDC-76.", including MDC-76
If this is not working then I would want to question your definition of "child issue" - do you really mean parent/child (better explained by the Jira-speak issue/sub-task description) or are you looking at Epic links or Issue links (which are not parent/child)?
Yep, that explains it.
MDC-76 is not a child of MDC-27, it has a link (which your admins have mis-lead you slightly by describing it as "is parent of" and "is child of" - they are not parent/child at all)
Anyway, you should be able to get the issues that are linked to it with
linkedissue(MDC-27, "is parent of").
(Or possibly "is child of", I'm not 100% sure which way round it works from memory)
Thanks for your patience and help. It's greatly appreciated.
