JLT Query for Quickfilter - Epic name

Hi Admins!

My quick filter is not picking up my Epic name.

What am I doing wrong?

"Epic Name" = Onboarding

Above is my JLT query.

Thank you

Hi @Vanessa Becker,

Thanks for posting.

I presume you could try this and this would show all the epics with 'Onboarding' as an word in it. Epic Name is a short name field to identify the Epic.

"Epic Name" ~ 'Onboarding' 

Other wise if you wish to display through relational link with all the  issues parent EPIC  - Epic Link.



Thank you so much! I have managed to resolve.

Hi @Vanessa Becker


As @Mateusz Janus states, what are the details you want to see.


If you would like to see all  items in an Epic, you would be using Epic Link in this case to get the list of all the child tickets of the Epic.

"Epic Link" = TEST-123


Otherwise searching with the "=" operator, requires the exact Epic Name that has been set on an Epic issue or multiple Epic Issues

Epic Name is intended to act as a label to set on any issue that belongs to an Epic issue, see Epic Name vs. Epic Link

"Epic Name" and "Epic Key" will return the ticket for the epic itself.

To get a list of tickets that belong to the epic, you need to use "Epic Link"

"Epic Link" = AD-3357

A side question, what is JLT?

I can find nothing on this.

If you're trying to access all story/task issues under a particular EPIC, Try using 

"Epic Link" = "Onboarding"


please provide more details. What you want to receive from JQL? you want to find this respective EPIC which name is "Onboarding" or you want to find all child items under this epic? 

Hi @Vanessa Becker 


Try to keep in quotes as shown below.

"Epic Name" = "TR Test Feature 7".

or else you can try key="ASB-1"
