Hi, @ebrahim rezaian 

The JQL query you provided looks like it should work, as long as the custom field name and value are correct. If the query is not working, it may be due to one of the following reasons:

1. The custom field name is incorrect. Make sure you are using the exact name of the custom field as it appears in Jira.

2. The custom field value is incorrect. Make sure you are using the exact value of the custom field as it appears in Jira.

3. The subtasksOf function is not supported in your Jira instance. This function is only available in Jira Software and Jira Service Desk.

4. The query is not being executed correctly. Make sure you are using the correct syntax and that the query is being run in the correct location, such as the Jira search bar.

5. You might not have permission to see the specific sub-task. Make sure you have the correct permission to view sub-tasks and custom fields.

Hi @ebrahim rezaian 

It looks like you might be using an App for this, which extends Jira's JQL functions.

Could you let us know which App you are using?
