You plan has to have issue sources that can 'see' all the tickets in the structure you want to build, whether you use filters, boards, or projects - so you'll probably need to include a few queries for it, or have a board that is already using a query that sees them, or combinations of boards and filters.

For example, If I want to see a specific epic and all it's tasks:

issuekey = EPIC-1234 or "Epic Link" = EPIC-1234   <- would not see subtasks
issuekey = EPIC-1234 OR EpicLink = EPIC-1234 OR ParentEpic = EPIC-1234  <-would see the subtasks)

If you have lots of epics, you can pass in more filters, or rebuild the filter to:

issuekey in (list of epics) or "Epic Link" in (list of epics) or ParentEpic in (list of Epics)

I find instead that it's easier to build several filters, then add each as an issue source, which should show the relationship assuming your Plan Filters are set up correctly.

Thank you for advise. But i want to add: we have some usefull structure in our company where we use "contains" for linking  two Epics with each other. Now i wanna display this two linked Epics in Plans structure/ But Plans cant show me this link "contains".
