How to make a filter to gather all the Sub-Task of a Task?

Or All the Tasks of an EPIC? I did not find the way to express in JQL the keywords to express a link as a child of another ticket.

Hi @Laurence ROBERT 

This usually works well with Story - Subtask relationships, should also for Epics, but I haven't tried it


replace ABC-123 with the key for the parent ticket

Hi Laurance,


You can retrive subtask of a fixed list of parent by doing the following:

parent IN (PARENT-1, PARENT-2, PARENT-3)


You can also do the same within epics using the following:

"Epic Link" IN (EPIC-1, EPIC-2, EPIC-3)


However, if you need a dynamic list of items, that is, for example all subtask of not "Done" issues you need a third-party app, ie using JQL Booster Pack (FREE) you could type the following:

issue IN subtasksOf("status != Done")


You can also might find interesing the following jql functions provided by this app.

  • issuesInEpics()
  • epicsOf()
  • parentsOf() 
  • subtasksOf() 


Kind Regards
