How to search issues by Sub-Task status

I'd like to create a query which searches for issues whose childs(Sub-Tasks) are ALL in 'Resolved' status.

*Issue A
-> Sub-Taks1 - Resolved
-> Sub-Task2 - Resolved

*Issue B
-> Sub-Task1 - Resolved
-> Sub-Task2 - Open

In this case, only the issue A should be searched by that query.
Could you please let me know how I can create such query using JQL?

you can use the following query:

issue in parentIssuesFromQuery("resolution is not empty") and issue not in parentIssuesFromQuery("resolution is empty")

Hope this helps
