Filter: all Epics that are incomplete but only have Stories that are complete

Is there a way for a filter to say something like:

Show all Epics that are incomplete but only have Stories that are complete.

I guess the problem here is how to relate an Epic to a story in a filter.

This is tricky but doable. But you need the jql functions from the script runner plugin (couple of other plugins can do similar to be fair).

The query is like this:

status != Done and 
    issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf("status = Done", "has epic") and 
    not issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf("status != Done", "has epic")

To translate this:

status != Done: Find epics that are not done. You might need to change the status names

issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf("status = Done", "has epic"): This is the tricky but... find issues that have a "has epic" link to an issue with status = Done.

not issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf("status != Done", "has epic"): Even harder here is the requirement that all the linked issues must be Done, so we filter out any epics that that have stories that are not done.

Not the sort of thing you could expect a user to do but you might be able to set it up for them.

Hi @Jamie Echlin, is there a way to make your awesome jql work on the ScriptRunner Enhanced Search on cloud? Thanks!

Thanks @JamieA

You gave this answer 5 years ago, and due to the magic of the interwebs, I was able to find your JQL today and use it to find the Epics I was looking for.

Cheers mate!
