How do I query the parent issue id of a subtask?

Hello,

I am writing a simple query against the Jira Database, but I cannot get the parent issue id of the issues. I tried including customfieldvalue.parentkey, but it is NULL for all the subtasks. Does anyone know what the actual parent key id is?

Thanks,

Velina Urdova

You should be looking at issuelink table. Subtasks will have a link to parent issue with link type as 'jira_subtask_link'. You can find the id of linktypes from issuelinktype table.

Thank you very much, Jobin!

Hello all,

I came across this thread because I am trying to get the Parent link directly out of jira database by querying in SQL. I am not able to find it. Could you please share your sql code that you wrote to get it. Thank you in advance.

 

Here is the Sql query I am writing :

 SELECT P.PNAME, I.ID, I.SUMMARY, ILT.LINKNAME FROM ISSUELINK IL
    LEFT OUTER JOIN ISSUELINKTYPE ILT ON IL.LINKTYPE=ILT.ID
    LEFT OUTER JOIN JIRAISSUE I ON IL.SOURCE=I.ID
    LEFT OUTER JOIN PROJECT P ON I.PROJECT=P.ID
    WHERE ILT.LINKNAME='jira_subtask_link'
      AND P.PNAME='XXXX'
