You need to either own the board or be one of the admins for the board. Whoever created the board for you should be able to either modify the filter or give you admin rights to it. Here is the link to the documentation on how to create a board, which also describe how to modify the filter used, https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirasoftwareserver074/creating-a-board-889531204.html
Did you try changing the filter? This filter should do it for you:
project = X AND issuetype != Sub-task ORDER BY Rank ASC
This is what it would look like:The board on the left is showing all issues, including sub-tasks, and the one on the right is using the query above to exclude sub-tasks.
@Mikael Sandberg is there any way to filter out sub tasks from the board columns, but still make them visible in the detail view (right hand side) when you click a story? When I filter out sub tasks from the board, I get the following message in the detail view:
"3 sub-tasks are being filtered by the board's Saved Filter"
We are using subtasks as work items underneath the overarching user story, and would like to only see stories on the boards, but also be able to review work items (sub tasks) in the detail view as needed.
@Austin Wakat if you filter out the sub-tasks on the board, all you will see is the message "X sub-tasks are being filtered...". You can still click on the link and it will take you to the detailed view for the parent issue. So the answer to your question is no, you cannot see sub-tasks from the board detailed view if they are filtered out.
Just wanted to add an alternative way, not using a quick filter.
If you're using a kanban board you can also use Board > Configure > General > Kanban board sub-filter and edit that to be e.g. "(fixVersion in unreleasedVersions() OR fixVersion is EMPTY) and type not in (Sub-task)". That sub-filter only takes effect in the board columns, not in details view.
