Filter on parent epic Edited

Hi all,

I have a question regarding a filter that I am trying to set up.
I have an epic that I link to a specific component, now I am trying to create a filter that shows all issues linked to that epic (containing the component)
So I would like to use the component as reference in my filter.
Does anyone have a solution for this?

Thanks in advance!

Hi @Bart van Wunnik ,

Try with "Epic Link" = ABC-1 and component= Test

where ABC-1 = Epic issue key

This only works if the issue is linkt to the epic and the component.
In my case the issues that are linked to the epic might not have a direct link to the component.

@Bart van Wunnik ok, then use just "Epic Link" = ABC-1 :) You may include project if you want to restrict it to projects.

But this will not work if a new epic is made and added to that component.

That is why I would like to filter on component instead :-) 

issuefunction in linkedIssuesOf("project = ABC", "is Epic of") and compoent=Test - This JQL will display all issues associated with Epics that has a component value Test.

If you want to list issues without component as well, you can use

issuefunction in linkedIssuesOf("project = NTP", "is Epic of")

You can configure "Epic Link" as an column.

With standard JQL you can only find children of specific epics.

Standard JQL doesn't easily allow it but the results can be found dynamically using our professional indexing service JQL Search Extensions.

You can find children of epics with a particular component:

issue in childrenOfEpicsInQuery("component='My component'")

Have a look at our docs.
