why i cannot use JQL issuesSubtasks,issuesParents with "AM utils"

after install "AM utils" successfully, i found i cannot use JQL issuesSubtasks,issuesParents.

i want to list all subbtasks of critical parents, my JQL is "issuesSubtasks(priority=Critical)",

and i got an error------- "Error in the JQL Query: Expecting operator but got '('. The valid operators are '=', '!=', '<', '>', '<=', '>=', '~', '!~', 'IN', 'NOT IN', 'IS' and 'IS NOT'. (line 1, character 15)"

AM utils Version is 1.3.6,and we are using jira7

please help me , thanks a lot!!!

I think I figured it out.  You have to use the syntax

issues in issuesParents("Priority=Critical")

You can combine that with the rest of the JQL, but you must use the "issues in" format for this.  Also, I had to use issuesParents() when I thought what I wanted was issuesSubtasks(), so try both to get what you want!

Hello, should be:

issuesSubtasks("priority=Critical"). Quotes inside function

Are you the author of this add-on?  I can't get this work either.  Add-on is installed, but adding issuesSubtasks("priority=Critical") to a JQL query gives the error shown.  It's like JQL isn't recognizing the new function and can't handle the parentheses.

Works as Andrey said - JQL should be inside the quotes "",
As you found out in your recent answer.
And I suggest author to provide some more examples to wiki - did same mistake.
Great plugin!)

did you fix this?

not yet, sill waiting for the anwser
