Possibility of displaying the issue summary in "Active Sprint". Hide subtasks.


Is there a way in Agile-JIRA to display only the list of issues summary under their corresponding status (To-Do, In Progress, Done) rather than listing the Issue summary with the label (Ex: In Verification) and the sub-tasks with their status. in "Active Sprints"

Basically, do not want subtasks to display in "Active Sprints". Just want the issues to be displayed under the current status column for more clarity.  So that will be able to drag and drop the issues directly in the sprint board. Is that possible. If so how can that be accomplilshed.

Thanks in advance!

Hello, you could configure your Scrum baord to display only the information you need :

For subtask diplay you need to check your agile board configuration. And change swimlanes to "No Swimlanes".

Or add a quick filter to your baord to hide subtasks (with type not in subTaskIssueTypes() ) :



Thanks for your response, Quentin!

The quick filter works. But with few constraints. I would like to tune more in the Active Sprint (work mode). Can you pls help

1. Issues without sub-tasks to be displayed in the Active Sprint (work mode).

2. Ex: If issues are "In Progress" status, that issue should get displayed under In Progress (Swimlane).

3. Should be able to see a clear picture of issues in the corresponding swimlanes. 

4. Should be able to drag the issues between the swimlanes directly without manually opening the issues and changes the status from In Progress to In Testing or Done.
