I want to see all sub-tasks for unfinished tasks or fnished tasks with unfinished sub-tasks. This allows seeing which parts have been completed and which haven't.
I expect the following JQL to return true for sub-tasks that have parents with unfinished sub-tasks:
type = Sub-task AND parent in parentsOf("status not in (Closed, Done, Resolved)")
However, the parent in parentsOf(...) clause does not seem to work. What's the trick?
Thank you for your quick reply. I tried that one as well ;) subtasksOf(...) does only work if the parent task has a consistent state (finished only if all sub-tasks are finished). If there are unfinished tasks i wouldn't see them based on this function and it's just too easy to mask an error.
The function i am aiming for has one more level of indirection: Display all sub-task that belong to a task, which has unfinished tasks. I found no other theoretical way than via the subtask-parent-subtask relationship.
I see, I wasn't understanding the issue completely. In that case, you should be able to stack subtasksOf() and parentsOf() and get what you're needing.
Please try this and let me know if it catches all you're needing, it should return all subtasks if one subtask of the parent is unresolved.
issueFunction in subtasksOf("issueFunction in parentsOf('status not in (Closed, Done, Resolved)')")
