Why do subtasks disappear when I filter my board using Epic Links

If you are filtering your board using Epic Links, e.g. with a quick filter (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/AGILE/Configuring+Quick+Filters) that looks similar to this:

"Epic Link" = epic-123

You will notice that any subtask you have in your board will not show up anymore. This is because Subtasks are not directly linked to epics, e.g. subtasks do not have an Epic Link field value to associate it to the epic. This causes the quick-filter above to not pick up any subtasks.

The epic link field is only populated for parent issues.
