Doing project automation in Jira.
My data model looks like this:
| | | |
Story A Story B Story C Story D
Have an automation use-case that requires traversing from Story A or B, up to Initiative, and then down to Story C or D.
This requires four nested issueFunctionOf statements. My personal record until now was a triple-nested statement. Since the nested queries are used in project automation, and it is the inner JQL statement that controls the query, I do not have the option to use nested filters.
I searched through the documentation and found examples only of double nested statements using double- and single quotation marks. This forum helped me get three nested levels under my belt using \".
This is my JQL statement:
issueFunction in issuesInEpics("issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf('issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf(\"issueFunction in epicsOf(\'key= BEAM_OVP-9852\') \") ') ")
In above example I tried using the following hierarchy:
But that does not work.
This leaves me with two questions:
Hi @Jimmy Petersson ,
I tried a few, this one doesn't error out among the others:
issueFunction in issuesInEpics('issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf(\'issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf("issueFunction in epicsOf(\\\'key= BEAM_OVP-9852\\\') ") \') ')
Although pretty sure it can be improved a bit but the triple backslashes seem to do the trick 🙂
