Can you filter the display of stories in an epic?

Good day to one and all.

I yesterday converted a story into an epic, then added a lot of stories to that epic.

I have applied no labels, yet. The stories basically fall into one of four categories. And I can certainly add those labels. See the next paragraph for where I was thinking those labels would come into play.

What I can't find an answer to, though, is this: Is it possible to filter the display of stories within the epic, so that you're not seeing all of them?

Thank you,

P.S. Yes, I'm sure I could a JQL query. so maybe don't suggest that?

well if I understand your goal....sure. How you do that depends on what field is use to differentiate the stories w/in the epic. For example, using your labels approach...

"epic link" = my-epic and labels = label1


"epic link" = my-epic and labels in (label1, label3)

of course you don't have to use labels....

"epic link" = my-epic and my-custom-field = xxx

I'm assuming you want to filter them directly from the view screen of the Epic (given your mention of already knowing you could just do a JQL query). If that's the case, then it seems you're mostly out of luck.  Your best chance would likely be to find something on the marketplace that would allow for it, but I couldn't really locate something that would make it simple.  

Beyond that you're looking at writing some custom Javascript or web fragment code with Scriptrunner for Jira, or something along those lines.

This also gets farther from the view screen, but if you're looking at something dynamic outside of an agile board, Structure has got some pretty nice dynamic filtering and view customization tools that can probably get you most of the way there, but there is a slight learning curve.

TL;DR :  I'm not aware of anything out there that is simple and quick, unfortunately, but if you're a bit flexible on going a level higher there are some options out there, it depends on how much time you have to work this in.
