Sub tasks show up in issues without epics

I create a story that I own and I add to a specific Epic. Now if I create a sub-task and assign to someone else, the active sprint view shows these sub tasks under "Issues without epics". Is this expected behavior?

Hi Alen,

That is the expected behaviour indeed.

Epics are associated to "regular" tasks and these are associated to sub-tasks, so there's no direct link between Epics and sub-tasks.

Hey Marcus -

Could you explain a little further, if possible? I am having the same issue and would like sub-tasks to that are linked to an epic to not be placed in the "issues without epics"
