Query all stories/tasks under epics assigned to a specific user

I would like to make a query that shows all stories/tasks that fall under epics assigned to specific users. I am trying to develop a board using a filter to display the status of all epics assigned to me only. Various other users may be assigned to stories/tasks under these epics, but I would still like to be able to see them on my board so that I can track their statue.

Try this:

issuetype in (Story, Task) and assignee = currentUser() and "Epic Link" is not EMPTY

Thanks Tayyab. This would only pull stories and tasks assigned to the current user. Instead, what I want to do is see all stories/tasks that fall under epics where the epic is assigned to me. That way I could build a kanban board using the query that would allow me to see how all stories/tasks are progressing, regardless of how many different epics I am tracking.

You can replace currentUser() with your own user name.

If you have ScriptRunner installed then you can use the following query, 

issueFunction in issuesInEpics('assignee = abcd') and issuetype in (story, task)

Replace assignee = 'abcd' with your own username.

Hi Aaron,

Are you using Cloud or Server?

If you are in Cloud you can try the following:

project = JRA and parentEpic = JRA-123

This will "return all the issues in the specified epic(s) AND their sub-tasks."  Take a look at Dave Meyer's response in JQL to show all issues AND subtasks in the Epic.

In Server you may want to look at ScriptRunner.



Thanks Branden,

The query example you provided would work only for a specified epic (or epics if I listed them all). I was looking for a query that would change organically as epics were assigned to me.

Thanks again for attempting to answer.
