How to show child tickets on kanban board, next gen project?

We have our kanban board for a next gen project and have added child tickets but they do not show up in the board, only as an icon on the parent ticket.  Ideally we want to keep this hierarchy of tickets that lead back up to an epic but show them all so we can get a better view of what is going on.

Hello @Patrick Walters 

Welcome to the community.

Referring to this post 

How can I display subtasks on a next-gen kanban board?

for the answer provided by Angelica Luz:

"On next-gen boards, currently, it's not possible to show sub-tasks. There is an option to group by sub-tasks, so it will show on the board, but show with other issue types, it's not available.

There is a feature request suggesting the implementation of such ability:

FWIW I did read that I just thought that sub-tasks and child tickets were different which is why I opened this.  Thanks for the info!

"child" is a generic name in this case.

The general issue hierarchy is

Epic - Story - Sub-task

Story is a child to an Epic. Sub-task is a child to a Story.

You can have several different types of issues at the Story level, designated as different issue types; Story, Task, Bug, etc.

It is issues at that level that will show on the board in a next gen project.

incredibly frustrating.
