I have one label for each epic, like cat1, cat2, cat3.
I do not want to create labels for each story; however, I want to create a filter on my Kanban board that will help me view all user stories linked to an epic with cat1.. and so on.
Using third-party plugins is not a viable option at this point. The ideal solution will be a JQL query.
Another alternative is to automatically copy/inherit the label when a story is linked to a labelled epic.
Appreciate the help! Thanks.
I don't think there is a way to do that without 3rd party add-ons, unfortunately (I can be wrong though).
Jira does not have a JQL function to filter fields from parent/linked issues, nor a post-function to set Labels on create.
You can then use 3rd party add ons to meet your boards requirement.
An idea is to, in order to set Labels automatically from Epic on create, use the add-on Automation for JIRA. It is a free add on.
Hi, you can use JQL Search Extensions plugin for that: documentation
Otherwise, you won't be able to create a filter. You could manually perform a search for epics with labels and then export that result and perform another manual search for issues with Epic Link within the epics you've found in the first search.
