Error using issueFunction IN linkedIssuesof



I'm generating a simple filter using the linkedIssueof function.

The filter is issueFunction IN linkedIssuesof(filtername,"relates to")

And I'm getting this error message all the time:

  • Error in scripted function: linkedIssuesOf, see below
  • Error in the JQL Query: Expecting operator before the end of the query. The valid operators are '=', '!=', '<', '>', '<=', '>=', '~', '!~', 'IN', 'NOT IN', 'IS' and 'IS NOT'.

From all the material I read, I couldn't find an article  that help me out.

Hello @Juan Pablo Bruno  Welcome
Why dont you try this

Provide your JQL direct query.

issueFunction IN linkedIssuesof("your jql sub query")


Hi Sudarshan, it actually worked when I used issueFunction IN linkedIssuesof ("filter=Myfilter"). All other combinations were not working. So I think I got it solved.

Your use of linkedIssuesOf is nonsense as you've given it in your question, I'd worry about where you got it from.

The actual usage is:

linkedIssuesOf(Subquery, [link name])

This is similar to parentsOf and subtasksOf, in that it will return the linked issues.

For example, try this instead:

issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf("status = Open", "blocks")

I don't think I understood what you're saying. I'm using the way you're posting, so I don't see a nonsense.

Thanks anyway. I fixed already.


BTW, the example you provided didn't worked for me neither.

The sample code worked fine, it's straight out of the docs.

The search you posted was nonsense because you put in "filtername" instead of a JQL search.  That's where the function was choking on "valid operators" you had not put in a real search.
