JQL for finding parent of given subtask

Hi,

I'm looking to write field A's value from a subtask to field A on the subtask's parent.  My attempted solution was to add a post function to a workflow transition on the subtask that would "Write field on issues returned by JQL query". However, I couldn't figure out the JQL to return "this subtask's parent".

I couldn't figure out how to use Write field on linked issues or subtasks for this purpose.

I don't claim to be a JQL expert at all, but was unable to find the solution after some internet research.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Ryan
