Filter to display all issue where parent epic has field with value x?

Hi,

On my epic screen, I have a field titled Department which is a dropdown with several options such as Marketing, Sales, Development, etc.

I am trying to create a filter to display all issues linked to epics which have the Department field set to 'Development'.

Is this possible? How can I reference both the Epic Link as well as a field on the Epic?

Thanks,

Tudor

Hello Tudor,

You can do this using the Power Scripts add-on, which can also do countless other things you will likely want to do with Jira.

Here is a video tutorial walking you through how to create a filter to display all issue where parent epic has field with specified value.

I hope this helps!

Plain Jira does not allow you to do nested queries, so you would need an app to do that search. ScriptRunner for JIRA has an issuesInEpics JQL function that would work. JQL Tricks has a similar function (if you are using JIRA Server).
