Adding sub tasks to Kanban

I want a Kanban board for a subset of tickets on a project.  How do I include the sub tasks as I can't drive the query on Epic as sub tasks don't have an Epic.  The subset of data I want is for a particular issue type and its sub tasks (but obviously not sub tasks associated with other ticket types

Hi @Elaine Cawthorne

I’m Charlotte, a support engineer at Appfire and I’m here to help you.

Unfortunately, using vanilla JQL, you’ll not be able to do it dynamically.

In the app where my team works, JQL Search Extensions for Jira, you can use this query to find all the sub-tasks from a specific issue type, for example: 

issue in subtasksOfParentsInQuery("type = Story")

Please contact our support if you have any other questions about this query.

We’ll be happy to help you!

Best regards,

Hello @Elaine Cawthorne 

Are you working with issues in a Company Managed project or a Team Managed project?

Are you working with just the native Jira filtering capabilities or do you have third party apps that extend those capabilities, like ScriptRunner or JQL Tricks?

Are you trying to get the particular issue type issues that are under a particular Epic? Or does Epic not play a part in the criteria for your filter?
