look here

something like

parent = TEST-1234

should do it and get all subtasks of TEST-1234

this isn't working in a confluence filter. 

seems to be 

"Parent Link" = FE-2270

There's a free plugin that supports sub task operations. Haven't tried it though.

Is there any free equivalent of this for Cloud instances?
