Can we add an expand feature to an epic?

We would like the ability to add an expanding feature to an epic, ex. expand an epic to reveal sub-tasks beneath the epic .  Conversely, we would also like to condense sub-tasks under an epic.

Is there a way when we are searching for issues or tasks, that only the epics are shown in the search filter? This way when we select an epic, the sub-tasks expand beneath the epic?



       Sub-Tasks A

       Sub-Tasks B


       Sub-Tasks A

       Sub-Tasks B

       Sub-Tasks C

We are a publishing business and we are having trouble filtering through hundreds of sub-tasks.  We are planning to use epics as 'campaigns' and the projects as our 'advertisers'.  Since we run hundreds of campaigns need a solution to organize our view.


Thank you for the help!

Hello @Jenny Lapat,

First of all... I have a doubt:

Do you not use Tasks?

And now, lemme try help you.

  1. To find only Epics
    1. you can use Type = Epic at your filter. 

  2. And to show only issues in Epic, 
    1. you should use this filter: issuekey in linkedIssues("<EPIC_ID")


Did I help you? 




Jenny Lapat, is this help you?

Thanks for the response.  I still don't think this is exactly what we're looking for though.  We want to see if there is any option to essentially shrink the view / expand a sub-task under an epic.  Don't think this is possible but just want to double check.

Thank you for the help.

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
