How can I query tasks (or subtasks) that have no linked issues


in groovy, I can search for tasks that have a specific type of links.

Is there a way to check which issues have no link, or  alternatively no links of a special type?

issuefunction not in hasLinks()

if you are using a recent version of script runner.

for example:

project = xxx and issuetype= xxx and issueFunction not in hasLinks("blocks")

Yes and no, that gives me also all tasks with other link types.

But you´re right, my question was not very clear.

I just want the tasks that have no link at all, without querying every link type.

Thanks, that was the information I needed: to update Script Runner. hasLinks() requires at least one argument on my JIRA instance. I noticed some similar problems with another function, but didn´t investigate further.
