Recursive Issue Search

srinivasp Feb 11, 2015

I have a situation where issue-1 may be blocked by issue-2 which in turn is blocked by another level of issue-3 (or other project) JIRAs. I need a query for the complete tree. Tried with the following Query but it is not giving complete list of issues.

issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf("issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf(\"ISSUE-1\",\"is blocked by\")", "is blocked by")

issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf("issuefunction in linkedissuesof('key= ISSUE-1','Is Blocked by')","Is Blocked by")


the result will be issue-3

Can we show Issue-2 also?

JamieA Feb 12, 2015

if you to show issue 2 you will need to OR it with the outer clause... or wait for a new recursive linkedIssuesOf jql function.

JamieA Feb 12, 2015

NB - jira doesn't support escaping quotes, you will need to use doubles and single quotes as Udo showed.

Clever use. But I'll wait for the new function. Tell me where to vote

The new function sound interesting. Thanks again for this awesome plugin, Jamie.
