How to hide sub-tasks in Kanban but display them in the ticket detail view?

I have a Kanban board where I don't want to see the sub-tasks. I modified the underlying filter of the Kanban board, so sub-task issue type is filtered out. However, while doing this, the sub-tasks are gone from the ticket detail view on the right at the same time. I do want to see the sub-tasks in the ticket detail view though.


Is there a way to do this?

Hello @Jessica Ren ,


Me also tried as mentioned by you.

Kanban board --> selected a story (JAPK-15) --> in the issue  detail view --> I'm able to find number sub-tasks. 


When i open story (JAPK-15) via issue view --> I'm able to view The sub -task



Detail view present on Boards --> so same board filter view is applied here also.

Issue view is from Project --> so no board filter restrictions applied here,

Hi @Jessica Ren

this has been asked a few times here in Atlassian Community (just one example here) but there is no intention to generally change the current behaviour.
What means: if you want to see the Sub-Tasks you would have to include them into board's filters - but there is an option.

In the following possibility was presented:

For now, you can use the Work sub-filter to work around this. If you set the main Board filter to include all your Issues, including sub-tasks, and then add a sub-filter, e.g. Type != Sub-task (depending on your configuration), sub-tasks won't be displayed on the Board, but will be visible in the Issue Detail pane.

Could you please check if this will suit your needs?


Thanks Daniel. I didn't find the Work sub-filter but did find the kanban board sub-filter. So I removed the filter of issue type in my "saved filter" and added it to the kanban board sub-filter, and it worked. 

Thanks a lot, I really appreciate it. I prefer this to the "quick filter", as we already have a lot of quick filters, so they are no that "quick" any more, and also they are not as neat as this solution.
