I want to create a filter that will yield only stories that have a linked epic where the name is like a given string, e.g. prefix to epic name of P: si P:Actualepicname
"epic name" ~ "P:*"
epicName("epic link") returning epic name would be amazing.
Any help much appreciated.
How are you?
Could you please let us know if you are using JIRA Server or Cloud?
I understand that you would like to create a filter to display all stories that are linked to an Epic which Epic-name contains a specific string. Is that correct?
Unfortunately, it is not possible to return this kind of information using only JIRA JQL functionality, however, there are some add-ons that extend the JQL functionality and would allow you to return this kind of query. Here would be the recommended ones:
1 - For JIRA Server, you can install Scriptrunner plugin and use the following function:
issueFunction in issuesInEpics("epic name" ~ "P:*")
You can check this documentation for more information: JQL Functions provided by Scriptrunner
2 - For JIRA Cloud, you can install the JQL Search Extensions and use the following function:
issuesFromEpicsInQuery = "epic name" ~ "P:*"
You can check this documentation for more information:
Let us know if this information helps.
In advance, have a nice weekend!
