How do i get a list of issues that are grandchildren/great-grandchildren, etc... Edited

Is there a JQL that will give me a list of issues that are grandchildren (and therefore have grandparents)  ?

For example, if:

  1) prj-A has a parent prj-B (B is the "Master bug id" of A) and prj-B has parent prj-C (C is the "Master bug id" of B)

  2) prj-X has a parent prj-Y (Y is the "Master bug id" of X) and prj-Y has parent prj-Z (Z is the "Master bug id" of Y)

i would like the jql to return prj-A and prj-X

It is no possible out of the box. You should use an add-on for it. There are a few add-ons available in the marketplace (Power Scripts, Adaptivist Scriptrunner).  If you are on Jira Server/ Data Center you could use Power Scripts add-on. You could write your own JQL function which would cover all your requirement and then you could use this JQL function in JQL queries.

If you need assistance with such a script, I could help you.

I have Adaptivist Scriprunner installed.

It looks like i can use the "linkedIssuesOfRecursive()" function

Thanks for you help.
