Hi Ofira,

JQL query to return sub tasks, you can write this" 

parent in (ABC-1, ABC-2)

But that means you need to have the list of bugs, e.g. ABC-1, ABC-2

But if you don't have the list of bugs, you can do it by using the JQL functions provided by Script Runner plugin, then it will be a query like this:

project = ABC and issuetype = Bug or issueFunction in subtasksOf("project = ABC and issuetype = Bug")

You will get all bugs and their sub-tasks from this way.

project = ABC and issuetype = Bug -> return only bugs

issueFunction in subtasksOf("project = ABC and issuetype = Bug") -> return all sub-tasks of bugs
