How to write a query based on value in Issue's parent's fields

Is there a way to do a query that says, show me the subtasks where the subtask parent's field x has value "y"

Thanks.

Turns out I have solved my immediate problem with the Craftforge JQL functions plugin: https://plugins.atlassian.com/plugin/details/31601

A nice person at Atlassian support pointed me here:

nice... taking note about this plugin :D

Script runner (free) has similar functions: subtasksOf, parentsOf. You might find that the script runner versions are significantly faster than the other ones.

You may well be right, but we haven't gone down the ScriptRunner path yet.

You don't need to actually use the scripting functionality to get all the other stuff, ie jql functions, workflow functions etc.

Hi George, you could use the JQL tricks plugin: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.j-tricks.jql-plugin

Sadly it's not free, but it has exactly what you need:

Subtask Functions

  • parent(JqlQuery) <--------
  • subtask(JqlQuery)
  • hasSubtasks([subtaskType])
