How to search for issues that all linked issues are resolved Edited


Is there a JQL that allows you to return all issues in a project for which linked issues have status = Resolved. If one of the linked issue status is not resolved, I don't want it to be returned by JQL query.

If you're on Server and have ScriptRunner installed, you can use this JQL or something similar. Note that this JQL returns issues which have at least ONE linked issue which has a status of Resolved - this does not check for all linked issues.

issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf("status = Resolved")

To my knowledge, this isn't possible out of the box.

Hi Alex,

I have ScriptRunner installed but am struggling with the query that returns issues where ALL linked issues are resolved. Any ideas on how to achieve this?


best regards,
