Create an agile board from an epic

I want a scrum board that shows all the stories and tasks from a single epic. How do i set up a filter to show this?

"Epic Name" = "Your Epic's name"

That shows me the epic in the scrum 'plan' view, but not the stories linked to that epic.

"Epic Link" = <you epic key>

Hi there, 

You can use: "Epic Link" = YourEpicKey

Though, this will only bring issues that are on the 'Issues in Epic' session.

Hope this helps! 

Cheers! smile

Thank you for your help so far.


I am now using

"Epic Link" = EPC-1 OR issuekey = EPC-1 ORDER BY Rank ASC


Which shows the epic and the stories, however it also says (in the sub tasks section of a story) 

"X sub-tasks are being filtered by the board's Saved Filter" 

How can I alter the filter to let the sub tasks through?


Also this help thing is pretty irritating. I could not post this follow up yesterday as I don't have enough "points"... not really helpful.
