Description:

Returns child issues (on Portfolio hierarchy) of issues specified by the provided subquery.
See also: portfolioChildOf()

Note:
Since you need to enclose the provided subquery using doble quotes, you must to escape any doble quotes using in the subquery by preceding a backslash after the double quotes, alternatively you can use a single quote in some cases.

 Let's see an example...

(error) This will not work

issue IN portfolioParentOf("resolution = "Won't Do" AND status = Closed")

Searches for parents of already closed issues which their resolution have been set to "Won't Do"

(tick) This will work perfectly

issue IN portfolioParentOf("resolution = \"Won't Do\" AND status = Closed")

Searches for parents of already closed issues which their resolution have been set to "Won't Do"

issue IN portfolioParentOf("status = 'In Progress' AND reporter = currentUser()")

Searches for parents of in progress issues reporter by me
