Structure - JQL and view


I am trying to create a Structure view that shows Epics within a Project with a specific label X and only the issues (user, stories, bugs, etc.) with also the label X. The problem is that the view is showing all issues in the Epic, even the ones without the label X. 

project = Y and issuetype = Epic  AND labels = X

I extended stories under epics in automation and want only the stories/issues with the label X and they show all. Is there a work-around for this?

Hello Christine,

As Leonard already mentioned, it is possible to create a Filter transformation to show only issues of Epics with a certain label, but you can also use a Filter generator(of Automation) for this. Generators and transformations are very similar and can be used for the same purposes, but there is a difference between them: transformations only are applied to the structure locally, i.e. if you enable a transformation in a structure, it is only transformed in your browser window and other users can't see it, and generators change the structure in its core for everybody.

I hope this helps. Please feel free to contact us via if you have more questions, we'll be glad to assist you.

Best regards,

Thanks. I completely overlooked the Filter Generator in Automation. Works perfectly.

Hi Christine

You are right, if you extend your epics with stories using automation, all stories will be displayed (even those without labels).

You will therefore need to additionally create a quickfilter for all structure levels that filters on the specific label. Leave the filter permanently activated and you will have your desired result.
