Is it possible to write a JQL search that shows all of my "issues" ordered by hierarchy: Epic, Story, Task to see all the pieces of an Epic and their status?
EDIT: changed it from EPIC > STORY > TASK > SUBTASK into EPIC > STORY > TASK.
Thanks, however, paying an additional fee is out of the question.
Maybe I have a different way of working than most, however, it seems to me like such a basic view to have.
All of the issues that (I created and I am assigned to) OR (that I am assigned to), and order them hierarchically.
That there is no simple way to see all of my Epics/Stories/Tasks in Jira just blows my mind.
Ditto from me. I come from an Azure DevOps background and the querying and structure that they provide is way better. I like to see my work in minimal form and be able to see the relationships clearly. Tree-views are best for that. At present, all I see is individual issues in a list. They are all related, but I can't see HOW. You are not alone.
Same here, after working with AzDo, I find working with JIRA quite challenging. I've spent sometime today trying to find how to view all of the teams Issues and corresponding Subtasks in a hierarchical order, but have not been lucky. Every suggestion so far points to taking an advanced version or an add on!
Also from Azure DevOps background and this is out of the box functionality. While there are aspects of Jira I like, the experience sours when all these little enhancements like this are 'nickel and dimed' * large subscription base which makes it difficult to justify paying for them as future subscription bolt-ons.
It seems to me I am not the only one interested in this:
There are probably more.
Yes, I Understand your point on this.
It has been an ask from a long time.
Let us wait for any other expert to support the answer as to why it has not been implemented till date (there could be many reasons like the add-on applications have gained more users to use it, adding a hierarchy view (a tree view) gets more changes to the Core UI of Jira - some possible thoughts.
But, I am also eager to observe answers from other experts on this.
Hi @Javier ,
To my knowledge this isn't possible in Jira natively but I put together an add-on called Agile Docs which does this.
I know you said you pay a good amount for Jira already but it sounds like it's exactly what you're looking for.
You can select any saved filter, specify the top level issue type you want (for example Epics in the example you gave) and boom! Hierarchy of issues.
Or you can set the top level issue type to All Issues Without Parent which will also bring up any Stories which aren't attached to Epics.
Also has some nice progress reports based on rolled up story points or time logged.
Hope that helps,
I did something kinda what I wanted, by customizing the search view
Type, Epic Link, Summary, Assignee, Reporter, Status, etc.
And then this query:
(project = SHDW) AND (issuetype in (Epic,Story,Task)) AND (reporter=currentUser() OR assignee=currentUser()) ORDER BY cf ASC, summary ASC, issuetype ASC, created ASC
On of the problems is that EPIC_Link is not part of epics, so I get all of the Epics at the bottom as this is the main order column.
If you would be interested in a ready made solution, you may want to try out our add-on to manage multiple Epics and their hierarchy on a single page.
Manage and visualize your Epics with rolled up estimate progress reports.
