JQL filter for showing only open stories and their subtasks

I'm trying to create a filter to show only open stories in an active sprint and the subtasks under the stories. I have "issuetype = Story AND status not in (Done,Resolved)" which works fine, but does not show the subtasks attached to the story. When I try to 'issueFilter = subtask' I get an error.

Was able to solve it by making the JQL simple: 

status != Done

Be careful with this method. You really should be using Resolution is not empty. Resolution should always be set when transitioning to any ‘Done category status’ and cleared if ever reopened.

The fact that you have declared issuetype = story will exclude sub tasks.

You can use something like that if you are okey with explicitly listing story keys.

(issuetype = Story AND status not in (Done, Resolved)) OR (parent in (STORY-1, STORY-2, STORY-3, ....) AND status not in (Done, Resolved))
