i want to have a filter that gives me all issues with a specific epic link and all their sub-Tasks. Is there a possibility to filter by the parents epic link?
so a JQL query could look like this: "Epic Link" = epic OR parent.EpicLink = epic.
Or is there maybe another solution for this filter?
This is an often asked question. A bit of searching in the community will give you the answer.
OOTB - No
Scriptrunner option - "Epic Link"=XX-###) OR issueFunction in subtasksOf("\"Epic Link\"=XX-###"
JQL Tricks has the ability too
and other addons i suspect
We now have Advanced Roadmaps(formerly: Jira Portfolio) as part of migration from JIRA Server to JIRA Data Centre...Comes for free!!! It gives a hierarchical view of an Epic and it's children on a Gannt chart Plan. We've then created our own Master Epic Issue Type and made it the Parent of these Epics (rather than use an Epic as Parent) to render them in that hierarchy view nicely. We link them to equivalents in AHA! using the OOTB Integration and so far the data seems to be synching nicely and gives the long missing hierarchy view in one place in JIRA as AR allows for basing a plan off a Board and an assorted of field filters within to slice and dice your data as needed to show what's committed vs what's not. I haven't researched cost of this if not on JIRA DC but it's a decent option we got lucky on.
I found the 'parentepic' field.
not sure if this applies to what you're doing but for me:
using kanban board with swimlanes based on queries
made a swimlane for each epic: "Epic Link" = <epic's issueid> OR parentEpic = <epic's issueid>
This results in all the stories in an epic AND all the subtasks of the stories in the epic displaying in one swimlane
Hi Alice, which version are you running?
On 7.8 this does not work. 'childIssuesOf' comes back with "Unable to find JQL function 'childIssuesOf(xyz)'"
Not sure if this is perhaps a custom function that has been added to your instance, or maybe it only comes with newer versions?
Hi @Mirko , unfortunately there isn't anything in the base Jira Server for this. It turns out that 'childIssuesOf' is a function provided by the ScriptRunner plugin. I was able to (after some time and effort) wrangle corporate red tape to get ScriptRunner added to our instance, and honestly it's pretty useful. But understandably frustrating that we need to pay for a plugin for this functionality.
