display parent issues in structure for matched JQL

Hi Team,

I am trying to implement a requirement in Jira Structure to fetch EPIC issue entries where criteria matches at its feature level. 


Epic1 - EPIC-01

   Feature1 - Fix Version/s: value - ABC

Epic 2 - EPIC-02

   Feature2 - Fix Version/s: - XYZ


   Feature3 - Fix Version/s: ABC


Matching criteria: Fetch all EPIC record entries where it child feature is having Fix Version/s value as ABC.

Expected Outcome: 

EPIC1 issue entry

EPIC3 Issue entry


We are using Jira Prem. Please suggest how this can be achieved with Jira Structure.

Hi @Jayadev ,

welcome to the Atlassian Community!

How exactly are your epic and feature issues connected? Is it via Epic Link field? Thank you.

@Hana Kučerová @Dima Kuzmin _ALM Works_ 

Linking between Feature and EPIC is done via Parent Link field:

The requirement is like below.
1. Find the list of Features where Fix Version/s: value is ABC
2. if point1 condition matches, display its EPIC and all child entries in the structure.

@Jayadev in this case please check my previous response, the steps there should do the trick (you won't even need to add the second filter).

If however something doesn't work, please contact us at or via customer portal You can ask for Dima (it is me) in your ticket description, and I will look into it personally :)

Kind regards,

Hi @Jayadev ,

Dmitrii with ALM Works here.

@Hana Kučerová  asked a very good question. I managed to come up with a solution no matter which link is used, but, if you like, you can reach out to us at or via customer portal, so we could take a closer look at your setup.

First add this Formula column:

if type="feature" and fixversion="ABC": 1

Next add a filter generator by clicking "+" icon next to "Automation" - Filter - Attribute. Select your formula, "Operator" should be set to "is true", "Filter on level" - "All levels".

At this point only epics and their matching sub-issues should be displayed. If only epics should be kept, another filter needs to be added. Its JQL should be type!="feature", "Filter on level" - "All levels".

The order of the generators should be the same as in my screenshot. Of course the insert generator's query and your extend generator may differ from mine. To move a generator just drag it by the left edge (where the dots are displayed when you hover your mouse over a generator )up/down.

Hope this helps!
