Assignee list in epic of all assignee of linked issues which are in progress Edited

Hey guys,

I want to see the assigned users to any issue of an epic who still have work to do. So that a quick status meeting with just the people with tasks in an epic can be held.

So, for a quick project overview - especially in the mobile app - it would be great if I have a list-field in every epic with

all assignees of issues (and subtasks) linked to an epic when the status of these issues is in backlog or in progress.

How can I achieve such a field?

You can do 

status = "In Progress" AND "Epic Link" = xxxxx order by created DESC and on the results just show columns, key, summary and assignee


if you have the resolution field set up you can also use Resolution = unresolved


If you want to show the subtasks, you need a field that is on all standard issues and subtasks, for that we use the fix version field.

status = "In Progress" AND "fixVersion" = xxxxx order by created DESC

Thanks for your suggestion.
Thats highly usable for setting up a dashboard and viewing just one epic.
I would like to have this assignee list INSIDE every epic when I click on it.
Like an calculated jql field that I can add to this epic.

Is that also possible? Or how would you suggest to give somebody access to such a list for every epic they want to see without filling the Epic Link in the jql manually?

Is it one Jira Project or many>??

If one Jira project, you could set up a board and then view everything in the inprogress columns for each epic

You could create a query for the project = xxx and status = in progress and bring in all issue types and on the results also show Epic Link and then you can sort by Epic Link

We have up to 10 projects. But a Dashboard isn't working good on mobile too.. hm, so there dont seem to be a solution for a field inside an epic.

assuming you talk about all 10 together, just use the fix version field and save the filter.. when a new project comes up, at that fix version and then take off any old ones. that way it will always have current fix versions (or Epics if thats what you want to use)

Hi @Pascal Laub 

Please consider discussing the problem you are trying to solve with your Jira site admin.  They can tell you have if you have any marketplace addon tools for scripting which would allow creating the calculated field.

If you do not have such an addon, you could:

  • use the roadmap feature to see the child items under the epic and their progress, or
  • use an automation rule, triggered on status changes to update the epic

Best regards,


I am the site admin. We currently don't use scripting tools like scriptrunner, didnt need them yet.
The roadmap feature doesnt show the assignees on mobile.

A great feature would be to have the avatars of all assignees on top of an epic like we already have on top of a project. Is such a feature planned?
I can't believe that you dont need to know which people are working on an epic. That should be a standard feature in my opinion.

Hi, Pascal.  I do not know if such a feature is planned as I am just a user.  Checking the public suggestion backlog I didn't see that idea in there.
