Dynamic filtering off of a saved filter's Results


I have a simple JQL query that pulls in Open epics which have WSJF value set.

Filter123456: Resolution = unresolved AND Type = Epic AND WSJF Is Not Empty

This filter is used to create my Planning board.


For my development board I want to create a query that pulls all the child issues of all the epics that are returned in that filter 

Something like:

key in ChildIssuesOf("Filter123456")

This way my development board is dynamic and adjusts to reflect the work that is planned.
Is there another way to do this as clearly this exact JQL doesn't work?

Hi @Michael Smith

You can also check if ScriptRunner add-on is installed (it's very often installed, too). You can check the presence if issueFunction is available in JQL). With this add-on, you can use this:

issueFunction in issuesInEpics('Resolution = unresolved AND Type = Epic AND WSJF Is Not Empty')

Kind Regards

Turns out ScripRunner add-on is installed, I didn't know that! so learning that and you providing this sample JQL has solved my problem. Thank you so much for taking the time to share!

Hi @Michael Smith 

Welcome to the Community!!

If you need Child issues of Epic, we have JQL 

parentEpic in (EPIC-1, EPIC-2)

This will return issues and sub-tasks that are linked to an epic.


Thank you! this is JQL I've not seen before and could be very useful!
