How to filter issues without sub-tasks


I would like to create a filter for my developers. They need to have the ability to see issues without the estimate field being filled. It work fine for us with the query like this:


fixVersion in unreleasedVersions() AND assignee = currentUser() AND (( originalEstimate is EMPTY) and (remainingEstimate is EMPTY)) AND project != Nanocoding internal upgrades and status in (Open, In Progress) ORDER BY fixVersion DESC, key DESC


But for those tasks which have sub-tasks we do not use the estimate field. We use the values from subtasks.

How can we filter those issues which have no sub-task.

You cannot do it without a plugin. You can vote for this to be in the base.

You might be able to do it with j tricks plugin hasSubtasks function.

I would try using the function with the NOT operator.

Solution without a plugin.

Use below query as a Quick Filter from the Board Configuration.

issueFunction not in hasSubtasks() AND issuetype != Sub-task

It will sort out every story which has No or Zero sub-tasks.
