Is there a single JQL query which can find all the child issues of a given Initiative? down through the hierarchy including Epics, Issues, etc?

Hi Traci,

Getting all child issues of an initiative via JQL is possible since Portfolio 2.10, you can check the details here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jiraportfolio/portfolio-for-jira-2-10-release-notes-940678731.html#PortfolioforJira2.10releasenotes-childissues

At the moment it does not appear to be possible.  Initiatives are a function of JIRA portfolio, and at least at this time, this relationship is not searchable via JQL, even with 3rd party add-ons.


I would refer you to this other related community post: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Answers-Developer-Questions/JIRA-Portfolio-How-do-you-configure-the-issue-link-type-is-used/qaq-p/549892  


There is an existing feature request to have the parent link behave in the same way as epic link does (which in turn would allow for the JQL searching of this kind)
