I am setting up some new projects and what I have done in the past is use the filter to feed all those projects into one "Main" board. This helps me keep track of that team as whole instead of having to switch to 3 or 4 different projects.
For all the projects we use Epics but for the main board I want to filter them out.
project in ("Project 1", "Project 2") AND issuetype != Epic ORDER BY Rank ASC
The problem with this is that it also filters all the stories that are tied to that Epic.
Does anyone know how to filter the Epics but keep the stories tied to that Epic?
Hi, Louis. That is interesting...Let's try to break down what you are seeing into pieces...
Thanks in advance for your answers!
Hey @Bill Sheboy
1. The boards are both stand-alone projects. Each product only has one board and the Main board belongs to the Main Project.
2. Epic Panel is not enabled.
3. Workflows and statuses are the same for each project/board.
4. Everything is mapped the same, same columns, same statuses, same workflow.
Ah, that part about company-managed and team-managed projects may explain things. Please take a look at this article to see if it helps create the board:
I just tried your use case, and it worked for me, including both Company-Managed and Team-Managed on one board:
What do you think?
@Bill Sheboy I really appreciate you taking time to try and solve this for me, I actually have already done that. That quick filter and any filter I created work fine for the epics on that board but it still does not work on the board feeding into that board.
So my Company Project pulls all the stories from another project I have that is a Team Project. On both the Company Project and the Team Project I have Stories that are tied to Epics.
So on the Company Board (Main Board) I created some filters to not show the epics and only show the stories (tired this both with quick filters and board filters). It filters the epics that were created on the Company Board and just shows the stories, but it also filters out all epics and stories tied to those epics from the Team Board.
On top of that, any story that is tied to an epic from the team board cannot be pulled onto the sprint, I have to pull the whole epic.
I'm getting to the point where I am just not going to use the team boards at all. I have been using Jira for 7 years and have done this successfully many times in the past, with epics and stories. Its frustrating.
I empathize with your frustration on the interaction of company-managed projects (CMP) and team-managed projects (TMP). There's a suggestion in-progress to add multiple board support to TMP: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSWCLOUD-17371
Perhaps what you see is from differences in how TMP link epics to their child issues: CMP use epic link to connect, and TMP use parent.
At this point, my recommendation is to submit a defect to Atlassian support to see if they see something of note in your instance. You should be able to do that as site admin: https://support.atlassian.com/contact/#/
