Grouping Parents and Sub-Tasks Together

All, when conductin a search, I am wanting serach results to be a little more clear than just providing a parent number.  Is there a way to display the full parent Summary when I am reviewing subtasks?  In other words, if you look at the search results below:



Is there a way to create a search summary (and ultimately a report for my dashboard) which has another column called "Parent Summary"?  The parent, in the example above is CRP-54, but that isn't exactly reporter friendly.  Ideally, I have another column called "Parent Summary", which calls out the descriptive text AND all the sub-tasks for that parent are right below it....

Am I shooting for the moon here?

The following only applies to JIRA Server instances:

You can use the free plugin Kepler Custom Fields to create a SIL Script Custom Field called Parent Summary

Once created, click on Configure for that Custom Field, Edit SIL Script and use the following SIL Script to make it happen:

    return %parent%.summary;

Then you'll be able to add the field Parent Summary to your issue navigator / dashboards.

I have been asked the same thing by one of my user.
