Get list of linked issues - how to?

Rumceisz Jul 24, 2014

Hi All,

some project leads of our user community faced us a difficult request. They want to get all linked issues for a particular ticket in JIRA. We know that there is such a JQL query for parent-sub tasks: "parent=..."

How to get the linked issues? We are aware of the Linked issues column but they need a list of issues row by row.

Is it somehow possible?

Thanks in advance,

i am not getting the linked issue by using the format you have shown.


My Code is:

def finding_link(self):
    a = self.jira.issue in linkedIssues('FLAS-54')
    print a,'-------'

Could someone provide an example? I am trying to list all linkedissues for a particular release. The details I am looking for are issuekey and issuetype

An example would be similar to the following

project = ABC or issue in linkedIssues(TEST-123) ORDER BY Rank ASC

Thank you for this. I've been looking for over an hour for this solution.

Hi All,

I am trying to get Issues that are linked to another JIRA Project (and not specific to any jira issue). Does wildcard works in Linked issues?

My Requirement: Get all the issues in jira PROJECT1 that are linked to jira PROJECT2

issue in linkedIssues("PROJECT2*")

Rahul Mittal Apr 02, 2019

Used the Script Function and it works as expected:

issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf("project = Project2")

What about searching for all issues (Stories or Sub-Tasks) with linked issues?

Timo Kock I'm New Here Apr 17, 2019 • edited

Hi John, I´m trying to get the results you´re looking for but with somthing more. I´m searching for closed or resolved Issues with open sub-tasks or blocking linked issues. I´m using the follow query:


project = "project" AND fixVersion in (version) AND issuetype in (Story, Bug, "Bug Subtask") AND status in (Closed, "Resolved") AND issueFunction in parentsOf("project = 'project' AND status in(Open, 'In Progress')") OR issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf("project = 'proyect' AND status in(Open, 'In Progress')", blocks)

But already the results include some stories with In Progress or Verified status and I don´t know why? Somebody have an idea?

dear all


I am trying to a have a dynamic list from Service Desk issue list where I list all the SD issues that have not linked to a proper issue in our JIRA software.


I did not understand how to extract the list of open issues - for a specific project - not linked to any issue.


Any idea?
