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
Is it possible to use JQL in the Confluence JIRA Issue/Filter macro to display a table of all the issues of a Portfolio Initiative? The link above seems to be creating a query in Portfolio itself [ issuekey in childIssuesOf("INIT-001") ], but I can't seem to find equivalent JQL syntax that will work in the Confluence macro to retrieve the issues.
I can insert the initiative itself with the macro, and assuming all the issues also have the label "MyLabel", I can generate the table with 'labels = "MyLabel" '. But I'd like to directly retrieve the initiative's issues.
This is cloud JIRA with Portfolio and Confluence on.
This sound like you can only query for child issues for one Initiative at a time. Is this correct? Is there a way you can put more than one Initative in this query issuekey in childIssuesOf("INIT-001")? So, let's say, I want to see all the Child Issues in INIT-100 and INIT-200, can I query for both of them at the same to show on the screen? Hope this make sense. Thanks.
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)
