Query subtasks which parent has label

Michael Goodnow Aug 13, 2012

We are using JQL Tricks Plugin which provides some excellent enhances to advanced query's.

However, if are unable to find a plugin/solution to solve this problem. We have parent/subtask issues where our parents are labeled with a particular label. We want to search for all subtasks where the parent has label x.

Something like:

project = "Test" parent('labels in ("mylabel")')

Anyone know how to perform this query?

Can you try the following?

issue in parent("labels = \"mylabel\"")

You can also do the following if you want to search on multiple labels

issue in parent("labels in (\"mylabel\",\"some other label\")")

Three years later, and this code doesn't work. I guess JQL's changed a lot since then. How would this be done now?

Just have the same requirement and successfully make it happens

You can use something like
