ParentEPic in()


I want to display all issues under epic.  By using  (SME-1) function all issues under  Epic are displaying but for new epic, every time we have to change the epic key. 

Do we have any alternative to display issues under the epic without changing the Epic issue key in the function?

If you have a way to search for the new Epics, for which you want to display the issues, you can do it with the help of JQL Tricks add-on.

For example, you will be doing something like this to show all issues under Epics created since the start of the day.

issue in issuesWhereEpicIn("created >= startOfDay()")


JQL tricks plugin is only available on server.  What could be the solution for cloud instance.

You can now achieve the same outcome using the following JQL:

issuekey in portfolioChildIssuesOf("AB-123")

 It returns all the child issues under an Epic (or any higher custom issue types you may have above it e.g. Initiative). It works across all the levels of your hierarchy even though they may not have a direct connection to the issue in question. 

I don't believe that solves the initial question of making the key values dynamic (ie: having to change the epic key every time)

the only way I have found to do this is via ScriptRunner (paid add-on unfortunately)

issueFunction in issuesInEpics("[insert standard JQL here]")
