Howto bulk edit / change all subtasks

Based on a javascript in created by Brian Mortenson I created a javascript snippet that you can paste into your announcement banner.

This will allow users easy access to show the list of all subtasks in the issue-navgiator.

From there you can use bulk change as usual.

My users are very happy with this, so I just thought I'd share it were with you.

Kudos to Brian of course!

<script type="text/javascript">


    var matches = location.pathname.match(/browse\/([A-Z]+-[0-9]+)/),
        list, id, item, link;

	    if (matches){
			id = matches[1];

			list = document.getElementById('subtask-view-options');
			if (list) {

				link = document.createElement('a');
					link.href = '/issues/?jql=parent%20%3D%20' + id,
					link.className = 'aui-list-checked aui-list-item-link',
					link.title = 'Show and edit subtasks in navigator',
					link.innerHTML = 'Edit All';

				item = document.createElement('li');
				item.className = 'aui-list-item';

Thanks for this,

For Jira 5.1 change the href for :

link.href = '/jira/secure/IssueNavigator!executeAdvanced.jspa?jqlQuery=parent%20%3D%20' + id,


Any idea if this works in JIRA 6.3.7?

Thank you!

It works in 6.3.4 so I think it will work in 6.3.7

This no longer works in the OnDemand version of 6.4 for security reasons, is there anywhere else I can insert this?
