JQL: Show all sub-tasks for unfinished tasks

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?

Hello, 

This should work to get you the parents of any unresolved subtasks, which I think is what you're needing. 

issueFunction in parentsOf("status not in (Closed,Done,Resolved)")

 If it's not working for you, let me know. :)

Hi Jenna,

your suggestion selects the parents themselves, not the sub-tasks. I want to see all the sub-tasks (finished and unfinished).

Can you guide my why the parent-comparison in my code is not working as expected?

Best regards,
Henning

I think you may want to use the 'subtasksOf()' function then. 

parentsOf() is getting the parents of subtasks with a status that isn't Closed, Done, or Resolved. 

Sorry if I'm misunderstanding your question. 

Jenna

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)')")

Perfect, just what I needed. Thanks Jenna

This filter is exactly what I needed! Thank you!!!

Team i have run above query in jira core but showing below error .

 

Field 'issueFunction' does not exist or you do not have permission to view it.
