ScriptRunner Enhanced Search - Get issues with linkes issues matching a specific condition

Hans Hugo February 27, 2024


we migrated from Jira Server to Jira Cloud.

A filter query we used with Jira Server was something like this:

project = ABC and issue IN linkedIssuesOf("project = DEF and resolution = Unresolved")

It returned all issues from project ABC which have a linked issue to project DEF which has a resolved resolution.

With Jira Cloud we have to use the Enhanced Search feature which provides a JQL Function "linkedIssuesOf":

But this function does not match our needs because it will return the linked issues itself matching the condition.

Is there a way to write a query similar to the Jira Server version (which returns issues from project ABC instead of DEF) with Jira Cloud / Enhanced Search? Thanks!

Hi @Hans Hugo 

Potentially, you can try the below JQL search example as a guide:

issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf("Project = T2 AND resolution = Done") AND Project = STRAW 

The example above will show all the issues from Project = STRAW containing linked issues related to Project = T2.

Can you try this and see how it goes?

I hope this helps. :)

Kind Regards

Thx, it works. But complex queries will always run in the 30 sec timeout :(

Hi @Hans Hugo

Please raise a support ticket with our support team here: SR4JC support so we can get some more information regarding your JQL query and hopefully help you to resolve the 30 second timeout issue.
