In the Issues view, I'd like to configure a column to display the Parent Issue of a sub-task displayed.
In the Summary column, JIRA embeds a hyperlink to the Parent Issue, but I'm actually seeking a freestanding column to export to Excel which would only contain the Parent Issue (of a sub-task) or be blank (if the row contains a freestanding issue).
The columns drop-down doesn't offer a choice for "Parent", "Parent Issue" or something similar.
You can do this by setting up the a post function: Copy Value from Other Field (from JIRA Suite Utilities) to copy the issuekey from the parent to the sub-task. This post function would be part of the Create Issue transition of the sub-task workflow. You'd need a custom field in the sub-task to hold the parent key value.
I have been trying to figure this out myself. I really would like to have something similar to the way Epics work. In my dashboards I display filtered list that include a number of issues associated w/ Epics. In the Filter Results gadget I add "Epic Link" to the list of columns allowing me to sort by Epic resulting in a nice organization for my issues. Example:
Unfortunately the Epic Link will be blank for sub-tasks as they inherit from parent but do not display (crazy IMO) so I can't even use epic much less 'parent'. My research has not turned up anything yet but will watch this question and will provide anything I find.
