How to display substasks on the Jira backlog ?

Hello everyone,

I'm using a SCRUM board and so far, I only see the stories but I would need to display the subtasks associated to the stories. With the display of subtasks I assume that I will be able to filter on subtasks labels and be able to get the sum of Story points by swimlane for a specific label. 

My team is using "FRONT" and "BACK" labels to split the stories in subtasks and to check each team capacity before launching a sprint we need to get the sum of story points for each label. 

Does anyone know how to make this work ? 

Many thanks !!

You can see them on the backlog - add the "subtasks" field to the card display.  This will show you the list of sub-tasks for each issue you have on the board.

Of course, you can't do a lot with them, other than know that they are there - you can't rank them in a backlog, put them into a sprint or estimate on them (because they're part of their parent issue, not separate items), but at least you can see them if you do this.

Hi @Nic Brough -Adaptavist- 
could you please share snapshots of "add the "subtasks" field to the card display"
I can't seem to find these configs.
All i need is for the subtasks to be listed on the backlog - just so that the team is aware of them. 

Go to "board settings" and then "Card Layout"
