Hi @Mohamed BOUKHRIS

Is this in relation to Portfolio? Parentsof works against a specific issue - so for example, searching for a story in a work hierarchy would return the Epics, Initiatives and higher levels in your hierarchy in the search results.

If you're looking for more a search with a nestled query - such as give me all the Parents with closed stories below them - you'll need a more powerful JQL App - such as ScriptRunner.
