How to display fields from parent and subtask/link?

Is there a way or a plugin available that will allow the issue navigator to display of fields from both the subtask/link and it's parent issue?  For example, given a list of issues from a filter, is there a way to display the following columns:

  • subtask.summary
  • subtask.assignee
  • subtask.customField
  • parent.assignee
  • parent.customField

The filter is not the issue here, I can get the results I want, this is simply a display issue in the issue navigator.  I would like to view the filter results with the issue navigator displaying data from both the subtask and the parent.

I can use a plugin like the Better Excel Plugin to export the issues to Excel with the desired information, but this is cumbersome if I just want to look at the results and we are always tweaking the columns we want to display.

Scripted fields is the best option, there are several add-ons that can do that.

Scripted Fields solved my problem thanks!
