How do I display fields from several issues in a single query?


I have 2 JIRA projects with a with links between the issues (1-to-n).

I'd like to filter out several issues in "Project A" and get some fields of their child issues in "Project B" inline.

This means that the "Project A" fields need to be grouped by key against the "Project B" issues.

Is there a way to do that?

JQL will always return an issue as the primary result, and then fields for that issue can also be shown, but the primary result is always an issue. As such you can't do exactly what you are saying out of the box.

However, if you made a plugin which presented the linked issues as a custom field value, then you could group by the contents of that field.
