How to access the Issues in an Epic type issue through Python?

Hi all,

I'm not very educated on using python with JIRA but I managed to access all of the subtasks from a parent ticket using something like issue.fields.subtasks. Is there a similar way of gettting the issues in an Epic issue? (i.e. issue.fields.issuesinepic?)

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Brandi:

In cases like this, always try to do things in the UI and then use the corresponding API call. So if you know your EPIC then go to the Search Issued and type this:

project = "project-name" and "Epic Link" = <the epic key>


If this displays the correct results then use the API to search and retrieve the list of issues.

Hope this helps
