ScriptRunner linkedIssuesOfRecursive not working in latest release?

We are using Jira 7.1.4 and in our QA instance, I recently updated the ScriptRunner plugin to the latest (5.0.14).


I am running the following query:

issueFunction in linkedIssuesOfRecursive('project = OMS and issuetype = Epic')

and it returns no results.  That project has 13 Epics and each Epic has at least 30 associated Stories.  I have re-indexed and still get no results.


That query returns results when using ScriptRunner version 4.3.8 installed in our production Jira.

Hi Greg,

We changed the behaviour of the linkedIssuesOf JQL functions to not consider epics. This change is explained here.

We have provided an alternative which work exactly the same as before, which is explained in the release notes here.

Please change your query to:

issueFunction in linkedIssuesOfAllRecursive('project = OMS and issuetype = Epic')

You should then see the correct results returned.


Thanks Adam, that works!

Hi Adam,

I have found that the above mentioned linkedIssuesOfAllRecursive() is not available in Jira 7.10.2 with SR 5.4.12.

Thanks in advance.
