Hi, I am looking for a method to filter by issues containing a certain label but also to include their child issues regardless of their labels.
I found a lot of articles that refer to multiple plugins but those are not available on Jira Cloud version.
Can someone tell me how to do this?
I create your scenario and its successfully returning the results.
What you need to do is.
subTaskOfQuery="parentissueswithlabel" or issuesInQuery="parentissueswithlabel"
Please note that "parentissueswithlabel" is the alias of the sub query. This query will return all issues with label=yourlabel and their child issues.
Here is the documentation , how to use it
I can now confirm that using the JQL Search Extensions for Jira & reports plugin I can search for issues with a label and displaying those issues as well as their children.
Too bad this is only possible using a plugin,... I would expect to be able to do this with Jira out of the box :-(
Anyway thanks for pointing me to a workable method,... :-)
you may be able to do this...
TBH, not sure this will work. just something to try. I don't use the "filter" function much.
LMK the results
Sorry to bother but are you sure?
If I search for "toolkit" under Atlassian Marketplace > Find new apps from within my Jira Cloud Instance I can't find it.
Can you point me to the plugin page?
What I was saying is that the “filter” JQL function is available for cloud as I have it. I expect there is an optional system addon maybe that I have but unsure which one that might be at the moment. To be clear you do not see “filter” as an option in your instance?
I do have filter as argument to use like this in JQL:
issuetype = Bug AND filter = "My Own Filter Name"
But I can't use it as function like you described earlier:
issuetype = sub-task and parent in filter ("My Own Filter Name")
I then get the error: JQL-Function 'filter(My Own Filter Name)' can not be found.
