How do i create a swim-lane (with JQL) for flagged issues and their subtasks

So we are using JIRA Agile in on-demand and we want to create a swim-lane that contains flagged issues and their subtasks.

I just want to elevate subtasks of flagged issues to the same swim lane without having to manually flag subtasks.

Hi Andrew,

I think it's not possible to achieve that using the available tools for Cloud instances in a usual manner.

But I've tested and there seems to be a way using one swim lane for each issue that you want to list its sub-tasks.

You can add a query for each swim lane and use a JQL of type: parent = <parent issue-name>.

This way you'll have many swim lanes listing subtasks of their parents.


That's the best approach I was able to find.

I hope it helps in some way.
