How can I create a filter on all the tasks and sub-tasks in an single EPIC ?

I want to see the work breakdown structure?  

Alternatively, how can I get both tasks and sub-task to take a field value from the field held in the EPIC so the items can be bound together as a group?

Hi Graham,

I'm afraid you won't be able to retrieve all this structure in one single filter. For instance, to find out all the tasks associated to a single Epic, you can use the following query:

"Epic Link" = TEST-1

Where TEST-1 is the key of you Epic issue. Let's assume this bring us issue TEST-2.

The, you need to check the sub-tasks of each individual task. For instance:

parent = TEST-2

This will retrieve all the sub-tasks for a given task.

I hope this helps.



Clarissa Is there any move to provide this kind of work breakdown structure filter capability in forthcoming releases? This is a pretty basic project management request. As a workaround I have have to use component across the EPIC, Tasks and Sub-tasks which is a little laborious and an overhead.
