How to create a swim lane that includes issues AND subtasks that link bank to an epic

Deleted user Sep 04, 2018

I'm having trouble using JQL to achieve what I want to achieve in creating swim lanes for a Kanban board in JIRA. Essentially, I'm looking to create one swim lane per epic, and for that swim lane to include all linked issues, as well as all subtasks linked to those issues, and all subtasks linked to the epic itself. I want to be able to achieve this dynamically (without needing to update the JQL each time a new issue is attached to the epic). I have managed to do this with the epic itself, and the linked issues - but I can't find the right Syntax for tasks. Can anyone help please??

 

This is the JQL I'm using: 

 

"Epic Name" = "ABC" OR "Epic Link" = "ABC"

Hi Ryan,

I believe you are setting the Swimlane based on JQL queries to have one Swimlane per Epic which is completely possible.

You would have something like this:

However, to better understand further, could you elaborate more what you mean by " include all linked issues, as well as all subtasks linked to those issues, and all subtasks linked to the epic itself"?

What was the exact step when you had to performed the JQL query each time a new issue is attached to the epic and how does it look like?

I was originally having difficulty working out how to specify all sub tasks that exist under the parent epic using JQL. I’ve since discovered the parentepic syntax. Cheers

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 ...
