Hi, wondering if anyone can please help. I have a user that wants to use Jira for reporting on projects, so basically we have 8 projects at the highest level, below them then are other projects that are of issue type 'key initative', the below that are the subtask. The PM wants to be able to do a serch inside a project for a specific key initative and list the sub-task...i wrote this search thinking it would work
project = "<name of project>" AND issuekey = <issue key that is associated with key initative> AND issuetype = Sub-task
but no results are found
if i search for project = "<name of project>" AND issuekey = <issue key that is associated with key initative> it does find the key initiative(issue) but i can't find a search that drills down
There is a specific label against the Key Initiative and sub tasks and if i search for
project = "<name of project>" AND issuekey = <issue key that is associated with key initative> AND labels = EAADR then it just find the Key Initative again and can't drill down and find more.
Hi Peter, thanks for your help with this. I am just learning how to do the advance search. Is there a limit as to how long the code can be...as in i want to identfy the project ad sub tasks but then want to see what issues within that are in specific status, backlog and To-do, do i section them off with () or what way do i write it? any help would be really appreciated...
Hi Jennifer, your search query can be as long as you want, but keep in mind that it might impact the performance of your search.
Some extra information about JQL (Jira Query language) can be found here : https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Advanced+Searching

I hope this helps.
