I'm working on a team where the Stories aren't the same assignees as the sub-tasks. When we use the quick filter during standup to select an assignee, their sub-tasks show along with the Story, but they are grouped under a section labelled "Issues without Epics".
The Stories are in fact assigned to an Epic, but neither the Epic or the Story are assigned to the user, only the Sub-task. Since the Story is displaying (along with the sub-task) shouldn't the Epic also display? The epic has no assignee.
Thanks for your answer Jack - I don't know of any way to traverse the relationship between sub-task/story/epic in JQL.
Fyi, the board is grouped by Epic (which you probably gathered given the "issues without epic" label).
When the "assignee = xxx" quick filter is applied:
If the Story is either "unassigned" or assigned to the same person as the sub-task then it sits in the correct Epic in the board. If the Story is assigned to a different person to the sub-task, it ends up in the "issues without Epics" group.
