Getting all the sub tasks for a parent issue

How can I get all the sub tasks for a query returning only high level items (like stories).


for example, I want to get all the stories with a special label and all the sub tasks for these issues...

I found out how to do it with Script Runner, but I don't have it, and I can't get it.

It is not possible without an app. An alternative to ScriptRunner would be JQL Tricks which allows you to do nested searches.

Hi Mike, you can also run subqueries with Jql Search Extensions

For example: issue in subtaskOf("priority = High")
