Excluding Tickets that have sub-tasks Tickets in JIRA Filter

I have a user who wants a filter that would exclude tickets that have sub-tasks within them. Does anyone know of the JQL that would help produce that. I have the rest of the filter ready I just cant get it to exclude tickets that have sub-tasks in them.

You can use Script Runner plugin and use the provided JQL

issueFunction not in hasSubtasks()

Worked perfect Henning. Thanks I figured Script Runner had something for this but I couldn't remember the correct syntax.

did you tried like this?

issuetype not in subTaskIssueTypes()

Wasn't exactly what the TO was looking for - but pertect for me smile
