Show all sub-tasks for a specific Issue Type Edited


I am trying to write a basic JQL query to show all sub-tasks under a particular issue type. Been trying to work it out by googling, but not managing. So far I have ...

project="Operational ERP" AND issuetype=Sub-task AND issue in parent("issuetype=story")

I am using a custom issue type, not Story, but changed to align to a standard type for testing.

Please note

  • Needs to work on Jira Cloud
  • Want to do with standard JQL query and not install an add-in to achieve the required result

Thanks in advance for any help!!

You cannot achieve this without using a third party plugin. I can suggest you ScriptRunner or  JQL Search Extensions for Jira & reports 


Scriptrunner is more expensive than JQL Search Extensions for Jira & reports  after 25 users.


Here is the example how to get all sub tasks belongs to issue type story using  JQL Search Extensions for Jira & reports 


issue in subtaskOf("type= Story")

Thanks - so you can't do it without an add-on?

issueFunction in subtasksOf("\"Type\"=Story")

It works for me. 

@Mystic Lin Isn't subtasksOf only available through use of a plugin?

Indeed, I think that's a feature of ScriptRunner.

Try this:

issueFunction in subtasksOf("\"Type\"=Story")
