Filter for stories in Epic #

Hi there, 

I cannot remember the syntax to search for stories in a given Epic. Could someone help? 





DPK J Community Leader Sep 02, 2019
"Epic Link" = <EPIC_ISSUE_KEY> AND issuetype = Story

This will list all stories in an epic. If you want to see more than story remove `issuetype` filter.

Thank you! That is the one! 

Also, you could configure a quick filter for "issuetype = Story" in http://YOUR_JIRA/secure/RapidView.jspa?rapidView=33&tab=quickFilters

And use that filter in http://YOUR_JIRA/secure/RapidBoard.jspa?rapidView=33&projectKey=PROJECT_KEY&view=planning.nodetail&epics=visible

By clicking in the epic you want you'll restrict the results to only the issues belongin to that epic and with the quick filter you'll get only the stories.

Hope it helps

 you can use  JQL Search Extensions for Jira & reports, it have amazing built in queries

For your case you can use the following query 


issue in allIssuesInEpic(EPIC ID)

It will get all issues belongs to the epic you provided along with any sub tasks.
