How can i show the date of a subtask on parent level?


I have the problem that my dashboard did not show the dates which ar included in my subtasks. So my question is, how can I create a filter with JQL which shows the date of the subtask field on parent level?


Please help.

Thank you very much and regards,

Daniel, it sounds like you need to be able to see all your subtasks as well as the parent issues on your dashboard.  

Scriptrunner adds the issuefunction in subtaskof() JQL function for pulling all subtasks of specific issues.  This is how I do it.

Hope this helps. 


Hi @Peter DeWitt,

Thanks for your answer.

Yes, but in my subtasks are dates and i would like to show them on dashboards. I have the problem that i can show the subtask on issuelevel, but my dates dont be showed. The space of my dates are empty. But when I create filters for my subtasks dates are going to be dispayed.

Do you know what I mean?


Thanks for help.

Are the dates in your subtasks in a specific field?  Can you attach a screen shot?
