Hi @Srujan kumar ,

you can use linkedIssues provided by advanced search (

issue in linkedIssues(ABC-123)

 it works indipandently from projects.

Hope this helps,


Hi @Fabio Racobaldo _Herzum_ , It just partially solved my problem. Could you please help how can I get linked issues of an linked issue. So we have linked issues in a tree format. I need to get the grand son linked issues of a original issue. Then I need to get the time spent details on those grand son linked issues.  

Hi @Srujan kumar ,

unfortunately you can't do using builtin feature. 

@Fabio Racobaldo _Herzum_  Also I tried on multiple things . The above JQL

" linkedissue in (ABC-123) " only provides linked issues of an epic. It is not working for the stories or any other issue type. Could please help with that too. So, that I can get linked issues of an story or feature issue type. 

linkedIssues is issue type indipendent so it will retrieve all issues linked to ABC-123. Probably your JQL has other parameters in AND 

@Fabio Racobaldo _Herzum_  I have few epics in a project and when I use the above JQL to get linked issues under the epic then I'm able to retrieve all those. Now I need to retrieve the linked issues of those epic linked issues. So we have few scenarios like issues are "RESOLVED and few are in "IN PROGRESS". I need your help to track the time spent on those ground level tickets. Below are the Screenshots added so that you can get a clear picture.


When I search through JQL, I'm unable retrieve the linked issues for feature. But that feature has a multiple stories inside it. Please guide me.

@Srujan kumar , you are using a wrong sintax. The correct one is : 

issue in linkedIssues(ISC-733)

@Fabio Racobaldo _Herzum_  Gotcha, Thank you so much . Now I can retrieve them.

@Fabio Racobaldo _Herzum_  I need to search for the linked issues of multiple issues in one JQL . Please help me in that. I tried with the above format adding multiple issues inside it and separating them by comma. But its not working as expected.

hi @Srujan kumar ,

you need to put all conditions in OR. Something like :

issue in linkedIssues(ISC-733) OR issue in linkedIssues(ISC-734) OR issue in linkedIssues(ISC-735)

no other way in my opinion
