Hello @Walaa Salah 

Welcome to the community.

Are you working with Jira Cloud or Jira Server/Data Center?

This answer will work in Jira Cloud. I don't know if the same dashboard gadget is available in Jira Server/Data/Center.

You can create a Saved Filter that retrieves the Epic and all issues in it with a query like this:

issue = <Epic Issue ID> or "Epic Link" = <Epic Issue ID>

In your Jira Dashboard add the "Filter Results" gadget.

In the configuration of the gadget specify the Saved Filter you made.

In the configuration of the gadget modify the Columns To Display to include Assignee.

Thanks so much for the feedback while i need the issues that linked to Epics of the project and the  status of the Linked issues is released  

I'm sorry, I do not understand what you are asking for in your reply.

I would like to have view of the Epics and its links issues and status of the its linked issue 

Do you want Linked issues (the generic issue linking functionality) or Child Issues (issues in the Epic)?

Do you want multiple Epics or one Epic in the output?

If you want multiple Epics in one output set, are you wanting the output set to show the Epic and then the list of associated issues, then the next Epic and its issues, and so on?

Do you need this in a Jira Dashboard? You can get a list of issues just by using the Search functionality without putting the results in a dashboard.

yes i need multiple output can you send me the steps in details if possible 

Jira does not have functionality natively to give you the output in the form

Epic 1

- child 1 of epic 1

- child 2 of epic 1

- child 3 of epic 1

Epic 2

- child 1 of epic 2

- child 2 of epic 2

- child 3 of epic 2


To get the Epics and child issues of epics with native functionality you will have to build a filter that lists all of the individual epics:

issue in (comma separated list of epic issue ids) or "epic link" in (comma separated list of epic issue ids) 


To display that list in a Jira Dashboard see me first response about using the Filter Results gadget.


You have not answered my question about whether you are using Jira Cloud or Jira Server/Data Center, so I am not able to provide you with links to documentation on how to complete each of those tasks.

As you know i have alomest opened 72 Epic so using issue 

issue in (comma separated list of epic issue ids)

is no hard is there away more productive to add function returns the EPICs and accordingly show each epic which issues are linked to it and show this in one filter  

If you want to display all Epics and all issues that are children of those Epics for a project use this filter:


project = <your project> and (issuetype=Epic or "Epic Link" is not EMPTY)

That will retrieve all issues from the project that are either Epics or children of Epics.

Thanks so much

Hi @Walaa Salah , 

Please keep in mind that if you are using sub-tasks, it won't be possible to get them with JQL since Epic Link field doesn't exist for sub-task unfortunately.
