Issue filter "Subproject" does not work. Looks like whatever is set, is ignored and issues from all subprojects are shown.

I am not able not reproduce this on 4.1.1 given what the feature actually provides1. Also, the related code has test coverage. See QueryTest#test_filter_on_subprojects at source:/trunk/test/unit/query_test.rb@19786#L2406.

1 the functionality of this filter might not exactly be what one expects, see eg. #29596, #8853, #2512 and #3952.

Jean-Phillipe Lang said that "this is not a bug but a design choice" in #2512#note-3.

OK, but this is very very intuitive and actually not useful behavior. If I would like to see issues that are from the project and a sub-project then I should have a possibility to use multi-select - select with Ctrl current project and desired sub-project. Currently the list holds only sub-projects and by default adds all issues from the project.

Imagine situation that the project has 1000 issues, then I have 10 sub-project. I would like to see issues only from two sub-project - I cannot - because issues from the two sub-projects will be overwhelmed by a 1000 issues from the project...

Since this is "desired" behavior", it seems that my issue should be changed to feature request.

  • Status changed from Needs feedback to Closed
  • Resolution set to Invalid

If you want to display issues from only a specifically named subset of your projects, you can navigate to the global issue list at Projects -> Issues. There, you can select the projects you want to see issues from by using the Project filter.
