We have a structure for Jira Issues that usually follows this pattern:
As part of our Jira Software Premium subscription, Epics have a field called Parent Link used to connect them to Initiatives. But Stories and Tasks use a different field called Epic Link.
Is there a REST API call that can give me the entire tree? I only want the keys and the relationships between Jira Issues and no other data.
Hello Nate. No, you can't get the whole 'tree' you described, as the Issues are only directly related to the Epics, but are indirectly related to the subsequent Initiative.
You'd have to get all the Epics that were related to a specific Initiative, then iterate through those Epics and get the related Issues.
