Adding saved Filter

How do I add Saved Filters for it to appear at the top near "Quick Filter" search ?

1 answer

Hi @border_water ,

You can copy the JQL query in Saved Filter and paste the same in quick filters section of board.

  1. Navigate to the desired board, then click  Board >  Configure.
  2. Click the Quick Filters tab.
  3. Add a new Quick Filter
  4. In the blue area, type the Name, JQL, and a Description (optional), then click the Add button. Your new Quick Filter will be added in the top Quick Filter position.



Thank you Avinash,

I figured that after I posted the question.

I have another problem:

when I add the filter to "Quick Filter" I can see only stories, not the sub-tasks.

My JQL is:  assignee in (usr1, usr2,usr3) and type in (story, sub-task, defect).



Hi @border_water ,

Check your Board filter and Sub filter whether it is resulting sub -tasks or not. 

Can you make sure that sub-task issue type is included in Board filter.



@Avinash Bhagawati _Appfire_ 

This is the JQL i am using:

project in ( Proj1 , Proj2) and assignee in (usr1,usr2,usr3) and issuetype in (Story, Sub-task, Defect)


When I run this JQL in:  Issues ->Filter -> New Search -> Paste the JQL, I get the sub-tasks


But when I add this one to the Quick Filter as "Test" and when I go to Board view and click on "Test", I do not see the sub-tasks, i see only stories.



Hi @border_water ,

Usually you don't see subtasks in backlog due as not used in planning and you will be able to see the sub tasks in Active Sprint board.

Please refer below thread for same.




@Avinash Bhagawati _Appfire_ 

In the thread above it says to Use or issueFunction in subtasksOf("\"Epic Link\" = Epic-01") alongside your current filter.

shall i write the JQL like this in the quick filter:

project in ( Proj1 , Proj2) and assignee in (usr1,usr2,usr3) and issuetype in (Story, Sub-task, Defect) or issueFunction in subtasksOf("\"Epic Link\" = Epic-01")

i believe here "Epic-01" is the Epic link. I used the above JQL but still it does not work.
