Hide subtask only for Task type

Within Jira (5.x) I would like to create a search that hides subtasks for the 'task' type only but that shows subtasks for epics and stories. It's OK to assume only the task, story and epic type.

Is this possible? How? I'm mostly not sure about how to get the parent object's type.

This is not possible with standard JQL. You can find subtasks with 'type in subTaskIssueTypes()' and you can get the parent issue with 'parent' but you can't check the issue type for the parent.

You should have a look at the JQL Tricks Plugin. It has a 'parent(JqlQuery)' function:
