JQL to find open stories containing a sub-task which is not Open?

Help on a complex (for me) JQL statement?

I need a filter to show me Open Stories that contain children sub-tasks, at least one of which is not Open.

It is not possible on onDemand because it involves searching parent stories based on subtask status. On downloaded version, there are few plugin which might help.

Wouldn't this work?

type = story AND issue in subtask("status != open")

thanks, but ondemand says: "Unable to find JQL function 'subtask(status != open)'."

@Marissa McWaters What plugin do you have that gives you the subtask JQL function?

There is an Add-On for JIRA On-Demand, that has the requested functionality - https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/jql-pro

See the screenshot - you can choose the Subtask status. It will return you the list of parent issues. Then you can use the keys of the parent issues to filter them with the native JQL.
