Find Epics without a specific issuetype linked


I need to find via querry, list of epics that do not have certain issuetype (lets say "Task") linked to them.

Is this possible via search or any of scriptrunner functions?

At it's simplest something like:

issuetype = Epic and not issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf("issuetype = Task")

but you probably would want to add additional filter clauses to the linkedIssuesOf function.

Unfortunately it doesn't work. Can you advice another solution?

Doesn't work how? Can you find one issue that does appear and should not, or does not appear and should, and describe it? Ie issue type and links.

It still shows epics with "task" issuetype attached.

Afaik, this function does not support Epic Link, just the linked types like blocked/cloned etc.


Oh hrm i'm not sure what version of ScriptRunner you have.

You could try epicsOf("issuetype = Task") instead of linkedIssuesOf.

This worked perfectly, thanks.

Still don't get the logic of it... wink
