Nested tasks under Epic showing seperately on Kanban Board



First time using Jira boards so i could be way off.

I'm using Epics to manage sub-projects and within the epics I've nested tasks and then sub-tasks.

In list view this is fine and everything is nested just how I would like. When I go to board view it is showing the Epic as a card and then the nested task (with sub-tasks) as separate cards.

In this test example, I have 1 Epic Task with 2 tasks nested each task has 2-3 subtasks. On the board I want to display this as one card just the Epic task but I'm getting 3 cards.


Any help gratefully reccieved.

Hi Oliver - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

What type of project are you using? Team-managed? Company-managed? Jira Work Management? 

I suspect it is Jira Work Management (Business project) by the way you described it. And if so, that's the current functionality on those types of boards. 

What type of work is going done on these projects?
