Is there any way to visualize subtasks in backlog view within a scrum board?

I'm organizing my board using stories and subtasks within those stories. This way is very helpfull to have an organized view of what is still pending for a story to be completed or done within Active sprint view. But it will be great to have something similar within backlog view so it could be easier to know which members of the team have subtasks assigned for that story in a single sight.

What does your board's filter query look like? It's possible that the filter query is excluding subtasks. 

I'm just in the normal Backlog view without any filter and no subtasks are visible there

It looks like the default scrum backlog doesn't know subtasks, but the kanban backlog does. Which project type are you using?

You might be able to force the backlog view to show tasks by editing the filter query. (

In the past, my team has used something like this

project = projectKey and issuetype in (Story, Bug, Task, Sub-task)

Estoy usando un Scrum Board

Try editing the query for your scrum board how I mentioned in my last comment. I was able to test that in our project and got it to work.

It didn't works, still not looking subtasks on backlog view after editing filter

Had you solved that issue?
I also want to see SubTasks in Scrum backlog
