We use Epics like one would normally use components. We use Epics in this fashion so we can use the left hand drag and drop functionality, easy sorting and ranking in the JIRA Agile planning board.
However some users are having a hard time tracking when issues are added to their given epic. Using JQL and a saved query I can track when a new issue is created within the epic at the point of issue createion. However I cannot figure out a way to track issues initially created outside the epic and then added to the epic later on.
Thanks in advance.
I don't believe its possible per se. Take a look at this https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/GHS-10570...
When issues get added to an epic, only the added issues are changed. We add a change item to the epic, but this does not trigger an issue update event for the epic. We don't plan on adding this in the near future.
You can use the epic report to see what has changed for the epic.
