I have read through a lot of the questions posed on here regarding sub-tasks and kanban boards. However, none of them have helped me determine whether it is possible or not and if it is possible, HOW.
We have a number of stories belonging to epics. These stories then get sub-tasks created and assigned. However, the Kanban board shows the stories within each column, but does not display any of the sub-tasks. We do have sub-tasks on the filter but still do not show them.
We have tried linking the sub-task to the epic and story eventhough it is created as part of a story and does not work.
If anyone has encountered this issue and found a solution or anyone know a way to get them to show, some guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Check the General configuration of your Kanban board to see if you have a Kanban board sub-filter set. In our shop, that filter apparently defaults to "fixVersion in unreleasedVersions() OR fixVersion is EMPTY", which is great except that it excludes subtasks. As soon as I got rid of that, subtasks showed up in my Kanban board.
I'm also having this same issue for some reason I can not get sub-tasks to appear on Kanban board that was created. the Kanban board is set up already to display swimlanes by stories.
As well sub-tasks follow their own workflow so do not fall into the backlog status when created they go straight to an Open status which is tied to the to do column on the Kanban board.
I'm stumped as to why the sub-tasks will not display on the Kanban board.
I've also adjusted my board filter to ensure it calls all issue types and limited to only those that are still with no resolution or have been resolved within the last 30 days.
Board Query: project = INF and department = SRE and issuetype in (Story, Incident, Bug, "Service Request", Sub-task, "Fury Release INF") and (resolution = EMPTY OR resolved > -30d) ORDER BY Rank ASC
there are no additional quick filters attached to this board.
Any thoughts as to why sub-tasks will not display?
The best way to configure your board and show the Stories as swimlanes. Then you will see the sub-tickets in your board under the Story. But there is two points you should take in consider.
If you have backlog excluded from the board and your Story in the backlog, on the board you will see only the sub-tickets under columns.
If any sub-ticket in the backlog, you wouldn't find them in the board as well. So to see them, you must see the backlog page.

I recreated your setup in a test instance - I didn't find anything wrong with your setup.
This is what I did find:
It doesn't look like you're using the Kanban Backlog so we'll skip that. To check statuses mapped to columns in (2):
For (3), you can check sub-tasks below a story to see if they're assigned or not.
Just some extra information on column mapping; sub-tasks will show in a different column to the story if:
The other alternative as mentioned by others is to group by story in swimlanes. It does mean the stories won't move across the columns but is cleaner if sub-tasks are the main issue type you use to track progress. To activate this:
Hello @Marc Porto (US - ADVS)
Have you tried changing the board configuration to display swimlanes by Stories? In this way the sub tasks will be displayed under each story. Try it out and see if thats something that you are looking for. You can check out this link if you are uncertain how to edit the swimlanes.
I hope that this answer solves your issue! :-)
