Can I hide all stories whos subtasks all are hidden?

Hi,

We use a few custom quick-filters in our project, and in the Active Sprint board they work great to filter out sub-tasks. But when we switch to the Backlog board they are not really working as we want them to, and I can't seem to find a way to solve that. Because what we want is to hide all stories, whos sub-tasks are all hidden.

For example, let's assume the following:

  • We have one story PROJECT-1, with the subtasks PROJECT-2 and PROJECT-3
  • PROJECT-1 has status "In progress", PROJECT-2 has status "Resolved" and PROJECT-3 has status "Ready for test"
  • We have a quick filter: status not in (Closed, Resolved, "Ready for test")
  • We are currently viewing the Backlog board

 

Expected/wanted behaivor:

PROJECT-1 is hidden, becaues all it's subtasks are hidden by the filter.

Actuall behaivor:

PROJECT-1 is shown.

 

Is there any way to make Jira behaive like we want in this case? Either using some project setting, that automatically hides a story when all it's subtasks are hidden (but preferably the special case of a story without subtasks could be exempted from this rule), or with some JQL magic that we can apply to the filters where we want this behaivor.

That's a really interesting idea, but no, there's no way to implement it at the moment, as there's no way to indicate "and subtasks are all hidden"
