We have an active scrum board.
I want to hide the sub-tasks on the board at the moment as they are mainly tech tasks.
I have used quick filters, but want to find a sql query that I can use on my swimlane settings and NOT use quick filter.
Any help is appreciated.
Swimlanes and quick filters both use JQL and it's probably the same query for both functions.
If, for example, you set up a quick filter for "issuetype in subtaskIssueTypes()", then when a user clicks it, the board should hide all the issues that are not sub-tasks.
The same query, when used as the first and only swimlane, will split the board into two lanes horizontally, the top lane showing sub-tasks, the bottom lane showing standard issue types (the bottom lane shows all issues not selected for display in another swimlane)
If you want to hide sub-tasks completely, you should modify the actual board filter and not try to do it with swimlane queries.
Go to Board Settings > General > then click on Edit filter query. Add your AND type != sub-task JQL there. Be sure to save it.
Hmm, I did come across this in my search. I'll need to speak to the ultimate boss of boss who owns the permissions as don't think it will let me. Thanks for the confirmation John.
Does this mean you "can't" do it via swimlanes, but just that you "shouldn't" out of interest?
