How do I see all stories where the associated epic has a specific status?

I am currently setting up JIRA Agile for our project using OnDemand.

While getting the boards looking good was easy, we now face the problem of having way too many user stories in the backlog to get a good overview. Now I want to reduce the priotization down to epics on the high level board and on the detailled board I only want to see user stories that belong to an epic where the epic has the status "In Progress".

It seems that JQL is not able to express such a query:

IssueType = Story and (Status of Epic-Link = "In Progress")

Is there any workaround or other way to setup what we need?

Hi Dirk,

There are a bunch of plugins that let you do this:

JQL Tricks Plugin - http://www.j-tricks.com/jqlt-links-functions.html

Search Linked Issues for JIRA - https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/org.craftforge.jira.craftforge-jql-functions-plugin

Script Runner - https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.onresolve.jira.groovy.groovyrunner

There are some post here on the topic as well:

https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/177329/jql-to-show-all-issues-and-subtasks-in-the-epic

I prefer the Script Runner because it comes with sooo many more functions, it's free and has a great support!

Hope this helps!

Cheers,

Darn, I just saw that you are on OnDemand. None of my suggested plugins are available there :-(

I am sorry I didn't read your question more in detail.

I will remove this answer.

Again, sorry!
