How do I display subtasks under the parent story in backlog?


Somehow, I got this functionality in my Jira backlog. I'm very happy to see it but it just doesn't work. When I add new subtasks they don't appear there.

Please, tell me how can I enable this feature to use on every task.

You can see Sub tasks if the JQL used on Board is allowing Subtasks



Hello Chander,

I get this error when I try to change the filter

Hey Kote,

In order to edit the filter, you should be owner of the filter.

and JQL should be 


which will allow all issue types from Project XYZ.
