Is there a way for me to run a filter that will show me all tasks under an epic?

I have an epic set up in JIRA and I'm trying to see all tasks and their assignee's under that epic. Is there a way for me to do this?

Hi Candace,

Have you tried JQL: "Epic Link" = epic_issue_key ?

Yes and it will only show the stories with the epic link, not the subtasks.

It shows all tasks and bugs from the epic for me...

You can see I also have all standard issue types and sub-task issue types selected, but I do not see the actual subtasks under a story. The only thing showing for me is the story. 

When I click on the story and then a subtask, it says "A subtask cannot be assigned to an epic.

It seems I've found the solution:

install free SQL for JIRA Driver add-on and execute query "Epic Link" = epic_issue_key OR parent in sql("select key from issues where jql='\"Epic Link\" = epic_issue_key'")
