This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Why do subtasks disappear when I filter my board using Epic Links
Is there any JQL workaround to allow the display of all the sub-tasks of an epic, and not only the issues? I don't have any add-on.
The issues that display on a board are determined by 1) the saved filter and 2) the mapped statuses. If you are querying by epic-link, only parent issues will be displayed since sub-tasks are not linked to epics.
You will need to tweak your filter to include sub-tasks. Easiest way is to have the filter query all issues in a project. If that is not the case, you will need to get creative - use the built-in JQL functions with Scriptrunner (if you have JIRA Server) to query sub-tasks linked to parents.
Thanks a lot for your answer.
We indeed have an item workflow that works as follow : Epic --> Issues (Tasks) --> Sub-Tasks
There is unfortunately no way for us to use only the Issues items and to reflect the relationship between our items in a satisfying way.
Would you know free add-on that would open the same functionality than Scriptrunner? I would like to test out if JQL functions would fit what we are trying to achieve before starting to add costs.
Thanks a lot for your help.
the only way i have found to do this (cloud version) is using labels. so my filter looks something like this....
"Epic Link" = proj-111 OR labels = proj111
proj-111 is the JIRA issue # for the epic and proj111 is a label i place on all sub tasks. obviously this is flawed if and sub-tasks are missing the label.
it continues to frustrate me that i can't have something like...
"Epic Link" in (proj-111) OR parent in (Epic Link = proj-111)
or maybe adding a new operator to JIRA like...
"Epic Link" in (proj-111) INCLUDE Sub-Tasks
