Does ScriptRunner support creating filters with subtasks grouped by parent

I want to list all the issues in a given project along with their subtasks, but I want the subtasks to be GROUPED under their parent issue. Is this possible with ScriptRunner? I would be willing to purchase ScriptRunner if it can do this, but I would like to first confirm that it supports this functionality.

Yes. this would be possible with Scriptrunner.

I think the simplest way to do this with ScriptRunner would be to add a scripted field which you use in an ORDER BY clause. The value of the scripted field of a parent would be based on the ID of itself. The value of the scripted field of any subtask would be the ID of the parent plus some suffix that makes it sort later. 

Well, I'm stuck. I installed ScriptRunner (v. 2.1.16) and I'm following the documentation on Scripted Fields ( but I have no idea how to create a script that would accomplish what you are suggesting. By any chance, could you provide more details?

UPDATE: OK I think I've got it. THis is what I'm using if ( == "Sub-task") (issue.parentId + "_" + String else as String

I would suggest the same as Doug, and your code looks ok to me. Although I would use:

if (issue.issueTypeObject.isSubTask())
	(issue.parentId + "_" + String
else as String

that way it will work for all sub-task types.

And don't put the field on any screen, as it's not useful in that context.
