search and export issues and show their story

hy there,

I need for a report a list of issues in specific sprints with the additional info of the parent story of each issue

I can find this information only in the issue mask -> Activity - Links Hierarchy - and filter the issue to "Story".

But I can't find a field or colum for that for showing in a report.. is there any possibility?

thanks a lot,

If the issues you are primarily working with are subtasks, and you are looking to search for their parent issues via JQL, you will find that natively JIRA does not allow you to search for the parents of these subtask easily.

However with the use of the scriptrunner plugin, you can gain a number of other JQL functions one of which is the parentsOf() function.   With that you could create a new JQL search such as

parentsOf(Sprint="ABC") OR Sprint="ABC"

This would return all the issues in Sprint ABC and all the parent issues that have at least one child issue in that same sprint.
