How do I query parent issue custom field value in JQL?


Here is my issue setup. Parent issue has field called Dev Track and sub-task for these issue does not have this field. I would like to have query to result list of sub-tasks where Parent issue Dev Track field has value "X". Please advise how do I write this query?

@Vivek MuthusamyYou can't do this directly with stock JQL provided by Atlassian Jira.

You will need plugins like, JQL Tricks or Script Runner which have special JQL function to resolve such issues.

For example JQL Query this might work for you if you have ScriptRunner plugin,

issueFunction in subtasksOf("customfield_xxxxx = X")

Here customfield_xxxxx is id of your 'Dev Track' custom field.
