Hey Brittany,

If you find the Children Epics of the Roadmap Item (parentlink = ABC-123) you can then use the parentEpic parameter to find all children and grandchildren of the Epics.

Query could look something like: parentlink = ABC-123 or parentEpic in (ABD-234, ABD-345, etc)

Hope this helps,


I don't want to write a filter where I have to change it every time. In my mind it should be something like


= parentLink = ABC OR childof(parentLink = ABC)
