issue Filter result to return linked issue summary details

Is it possible to create a filter of an issue to return linked issue summary along with the key, this does not seem to exist. i am trying to build a traceability matrix in confluence for requirements(in jira) and not work on manual filling in of information in table.

Hi @Sharmila Radjasegarane 

As you're on Jira Cloud, the correct answer is to get an app that provides JQL extensions you're looking for.

With standard JQL, you can only get a list of issues and export them to Excel for further processing. This works if you want to do a one-off analysis. If your use case is more dynamic than that, look beyond standard Jira.

Standard JQL doesn't easily allow it, but you can quickly find the results using our professional indexing service JQL Search Extensions

For example, you can use this query to find issues that are linked in any way with epics that are in progress

issue in linkedIssuesOfQuery("type=Epic AND status='To Do'")

We have other functions and aliases that help you with link information. Check out the documentation for more examples.

I hope this helps, but if you have any other questions, please contact our support. We’ll be happy to help you!

Hello @Sharmila Radjasegarane 

Welcome to the community.

There is a function available natively called linkedIssues. Refer to

You must provide an issue key as a parameter of the function, and it will return you the list of all issues linked to that one issue.

There is not a native way to do that for multiple issues at one time in one JQL, but there are JQL extension apps available on the Atlassian Marketplace that could provide that functionality.
