See issues where a linked issue has a certain value


I can't work out how to write a query in JQL to show a list of issues where the value of a field of a linked issue is a certain value i.e.

We have an issuetype of 'Role' and an issuetype of 'Candidate application'

We have a field on a Role issuetype called a 'hiring manager' (Text Field (single line))

I would like to return 'Candidate applications' where the 'Hiring Manager' value on the Role is equal to a string i.e. David Leach

There doesn't seem to be any JQL methods that enable you to search the values of the fields within a related issue (Issue Links - relates to)

Any ideas?

I would check this out:

It's a paid plugin, but it's pretty powerful when trying to build queries around linked issues. You can always try the trial to see if it works for you.

Brilliant, thanks. Any ideas if something like this is available for ondemand?
