Retrieve only linked issues from another project



I have the following set up

Project 1 - 10 jira issues ( My project)

Project 2 - 1000 Jira issues

We create a relates to links from issues in Project 1 -> Project 2

Project 2 has many internal links between issues which I don't care. I only want to retrieve the issues in Project 2 that are linked to issues in project 1 and display it in a confluence table.


currently, i have to use the following two queries which retrieve quite a lot of unwanted issues of project 2 and then as a second step see which are linked to Project 1 issues.

Query 1:  issueLinkType = "relates to" AND (project="Project 1" OR project = "Project 2") <-- gives 1000 issues

Query 2: project = "Project 1" and issuetype = "PI Objective"  <---  returns the 10 Issues created


Following this I merge the two tables using a vlookup. which then gets only the entries i need. I need to optimize query 1 just to retrieve the issues that has a "relates to" relationship with the issues in Project 2

Is there a JQL query that I could use just to retrieve the 10 or more linked issues from Project 2.


Thanks in advance for your proposals

I finally found the answer to this.


issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf("project = Project 1")


This lists all the issues .. only the ones linked to the issues of project 1, so it reduced the time by 10 times instead of retrieving 1000 issues.

Are you using a plugin? I can't get that query to work.
