I'd like to create a filter for showing a list of all open Epics with it's issues listed immediately below it. How can I do that?
Creating a JQL filter which displays the epics and its member issues is fairly easy:
"project = SP AND (issuetype = Epic OR "Epic Link" is not EMPTY)"
However, I want to order the search result where the issues belonging to the same epic is grouped together. The problem is that the epic uses the field "Epic name", while the issues use "Epic link" so ordering is difficult. Can I join these two fields into one and put an order on the joined column like you can in SQL?
Within JQL itself it is not possible to sort in the fashion as you have written in your question.
Depending on the requirements for wanting such a sorting method, there might be different approaches to displaying the data in the way you are looking for.
Hey folks, for my needs I found a solution for this in the "Single Level Group By Report", a standard JIRA report. I defined a filter, picked it in the report and set the "Statistic" to be "Epic Link". It works well and I use an iFrame to display it in a Confluence page.
