Without an addon it is challenging at best where sub-tasks are involved.

if your parent tasks are known and few...

project = ABC AND "Epic Link" = Abc-123 OR parent in (abc-124, abc-223, abc-321...)

Yes, and... to make it a bit less manual (without an addon)

  1. Run a query to get all of the stories, bugs, tasks assigned to the epic
  2. Export the issues, and open the export file
  3. Grab just the keys, and use your favorite editor to turn it into a comma-separated value (CSV) list
  4. Use the query @Jack suggests above by pasting in the CSV list

Best regards,

Yep good tip

Parent task are many , any advise on an add-on?

Hi John, in adittion to the Jack suggestion:

If you want to avoid to manually type every Epics affected by your criteria, you must go for a third-party plugin to create such a complex query.


i.e. using JQL Booster Pack (FREE), you need to type the following:

(type = Epic AND project = ABC) OR issue IN issuesInEpics('type = Epic and project = ABC') OR issue IN subtasksOf("(type = Epic and project = ABC) OR issue IN issuesInEpics('type = Epic and project = ABC')")


The above query will retrieve:

1.- Any Epic within the project ABC,
2.- Any subtask directly created under those epics,
3.- Any stories/issues within those epics on the Epic Link field regardless of the project
4.- Any subtasks created under issues matching point 3 regardless of the project
