How can I use the character " within a query within issuesSubtasks



I'm trying to use your plug-in - thanks.  I have a query issue like

issue in issuesSubtasks("status in (closed)")

that works well but I can't get a similar query like

issue in issuesSubtasks("status in ("Feature Implementation", closed)")

to work.  

I think it expects the second " encountered to close the sub-query.  The error message is:

Error in the JQL Query: Expecting ')' or ',' but got 'Feature'. (line 1, character 38)


Is there any way to escape the 'inner' quotes so I can use such a query with issuesSubtasks.

Thanks for any help you can give.

OK, I figured it out.  Use \ to escape the ", i.e. \"Feature Implementation\" works in the sub-query.


Nice plug-in!
