JQL to show me all issues in Epics assigned to me

Hey all I'm trying to build a board where the swimlanes are all of my epics and those swimlanes contain all the tasks in the given epic.

@Mitchell Cardwell, there are going to be some limitations here you can't overcome possibly but let's try this...

Board filter: project = CT and "Epic Link" is not EMPTY or (project = CT and issuetype = Epic and assignee = your.userid)

be sure to replace "your.userid"

Now set swimlanes to be based upon Epic.

let's see where that leads us.

Perfect! I'm new at this. Thanks so much.

Hi Mitchell,

You can use the following JQL:

"Epic Link"  is not EMPTY and assignee = currentUser() 

This should return all issues belonging to epics that are assigned to your user account.

Hope this info helps!

Clarifying I need all the issues in the Epic regardless of who they're assigned to. Thx.

This is what I have so far:

project = CT AND issuetype in (Epic, Spot) AND assignee in (currentUser())

I want to refine that so it shows me only my Epics but then shows me the other issues (Spot) that are assigned to anybody in the Epic.

I tried this...

project = CT AND issuetype = Epic AND assignee in (admin) AND (project = CT AND issuetype = Spot)

 With no return.

And I figured it out...


project = CT AND issuetype = Epic AND assignee in (admin) OR (project = CT AND issuetype = Spot)

I'm trying to obtain the same results

- Return all issues linked to epics that are assigned to a particular user (the issues could be assigned to any user - only the epic is assigned to the specified user) - I don't understand the suggestion above, or how to adapt this for what I want to achieve


issuetype = Spot

assignee in (admin)

I want to obtain the same result as the below query for components, but adapted for Epic assignee rather than Component Owner

component in componentsLeadByUser(username)

I'd appreciate any assistance as really struggling with this. I work for a large company that does not allow use of plugins / extensions.
