Cannot display subtasks create in GH

We have a board which is used for displaying a list of issues for a Feature team.

Feature team is a custom field at the issue level (story). This is populated when the issue is assigned to a feature team

The filter for the board includes criteria to display only issues for the Feature team.

If any sub tasks are created on that board...we get a message stating that subtasks are not displayed due top the filter.

How do we display the sub tasks related to the issues...if the feature team is not captured at the subtasks level....I cannot get JQL to display a list of issues and only subtasks related to those issues

You can automatically copy the values from the main task to the sub tasks. There are many posts in this forum which discusses this -

Jeffrey - Two things we did for a similar need.

First, your filter for the scrum board has to allow subtasks. Make sure your filter does return subtasks.

Second, using ScriptRunner you can use issueFunction to get subtasks whose Parent has your custom field. Here is what we use as a Quick Filter to get subtasks assigned to stories so our Devs can see any story they have a subtask assigned to them:

assignee = currentUser() or issueFunction in parentsOf("assignee = currentUser()")
