This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: How to Display Sub-Task below the Parent Task in the Backlog?
Does this not work?
The information provided is not correct. Enabling Ranking in the board configuration does not show sub-tasks in Backlog-View. They do show in Sprint-View, but not in the Backlog.
Is there a way this can be achieved yet? *
* In a way that each sub-task gets it's own card.
I think that article refers to JIRA Core's business board functionality.
You mention Sprints, so you're looking at a Scrum board, which is JIRA Software, and the sub-tasks will not appear (because they're of zero use in planning a backlog)
Mmm, the backlog is for planning, by ranking and estimating. As it's nonsense to rank outside a top-level issue, and estimate should be done at story level too (even if JIRA did roll-ups, which it doesn't, you'd still be working at story level in this view), there's no use for them there.
Same here, it makes more sense to do sub-tasks when looking at that story as a whole.
The Core boards are pretty much Kanban boards, but there's no constraints or release button (the done column simply drops anything that landed in it over 14 days ago)
I know this has been hashed time and time again, but I must be missing something. I know the Backlog is for planning, but I was hoping to organize the story to include more than just development. I was planning to include, UX, Dev and Test in order to fulfill the story. Sub-tasks work great for this, since it's all contained in a nice neat package. This would be ideal for planning because we would love to be able to manage the various aspects and resources of the story. How do you guys manage the various aspects of a story like this?
@Kote Khutsishvili, You are using Kanban board are you not?
What you are seeing works only in Kanban boards. NOT in Scrum boards. See this post here>> https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-questions/How-to-show-the-subtasks-in-the-backlog-sprint-tree/qaq-p/412630
In Scrumboards you can 'play-around' with Card Layouts to have existing Sub-tasks within Stories show up in the backlog. Or even in active sprints
