Filter by epic

In the issues view, I would like to filter based on epic.

Specifically:

- how can I view all issues assigned to an epic?

- how can I view all issues NOT assigned to ANY epic?

When I add the "Epic Link" to the filter, the drop down does not contain any items. How can I get this to work?

ok my first answer was wrong so now we gonna proceed with this one...

"Epic Link" = POR-16

this example will show you all issues linked to the Epic "POR-16"

you will need to check the correct issue-key to modify the jql to match your needs.

Open your Rapidboard in Plan Mode and see the lefthand EPIC slider to check which Issue is the Epic. take the key from that and put it in the above jql

currently i am trying to find out this one

- how can I view all issues NOT assigned to ANY epic?

stay tuned

here we go:

project = <your_project_name> AND "Epic Link" is EMPTY

You could also try "Epic Link" is not EMPTY

For me the "basic" query builder refused to work but writing the JQL by hand worked like charm.

what about using Epic Theme ?

Create a filter for your Epic by saving the query (e.g Labels = "abc") for Epic

Give a name for the filter (e.g - "My epic")

Then to search for all the issues in the filter, use the following query:

issuefunction in issuesInEpics("Filter = 'My epic'")

Remember the ' and " in the query
