Hi Dodger,

I am not on the Jira team, but I will try to help.

Can you elaborate on where you are trying to do this?  Are you creating a filter with JQL?

We have Jira Cloud. In my previous role we had Jira on premise. There used to use the issue.function functionality to identify Epics with open stories.

When I try to use it I get a permissions error?

Hi Jay,

I'm afraid this isn't possible in OnDemand. For the download version there's a plugin called Script Runner. And do stuff like:

issueFunction in subtasksOf("project = XXX AND issuetype = Task AND status = Closed")

But I'm afraid that isn't possible on the OnDemand version (yet).



Like Marty likes this


project = PLAY and issueFunction in subtasksOf("statuscategory != done")


get response

Field 'issueFunction' does not exist or you do not have permission to view it.

Like Marty likes this

same with this query

issueFunction in parentsOf("project = play and status = Open")

Any solution this with out using scriptrunner on cloud version?
