Is there a field that is populated in the same way for Tasks and Sub-tasks - to help tie them together in search results?

Is there a JIRA field that is populated in the same way for Tasks and Sub-tasks - to help tie them together in search results?

You can search for all subtasks of a task using this:

parent = KEY-123

Is that what you are after?

Thanks John. It wasn't exactly what I was after, but definitely helpful. I was wondering if there was one field - populated for BOTH the Tasks and sub-tasks - that had the same value. In this case Parent = Key 123 is only true for the sub-tasks, not for the task itself.

My apolgies, Thanks Jobin. This is probably the best way to pull one sent of tickets that have both Tasks and subtasks. Filter for Key = Key 123 and Parent = Key 123

Glad it was useful :)
