I'd like to group for epics and hide subtasks in active sprint view

Hi everyone,

I'm currently using this query to hide subtasks from my board: 

issuetype != Sub-task.


Now I can see issues only but at the same time I would like them to be grouped into epics.

How can I achieve that? 


Thank you!

Hello @Denise Carofiglio

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

To group your issues by Epic on the active board view/Sprint view of your board, you can do the steps below:

  1. Navigate to your board > Click at the three dots icon (...) > Board settings > Swimlanes
  2. Select the option to base your swimlanes on Epics

For the backlog view, you can order your issues to display grouped by Epic by adding the following  parameter in the board filter under Board settings > General > Edit board query:

"ORDER BY "Epic link"

Let us know if you have any questions.

Hello @Petter Gonçalves I have a questions regarding using the query Denise mentioned. 
If I use this query below, would that exclude my subtasks estimates from the burndown chart?

 issuetype != Sub-task
