Updating Board Query to include Epics

I would love some guidance on updating a board query to include epics from another project, in order for the epics to display properly in Roadmaps.

Currently the board filter does not have this in place and I do not want to mess up the current view. It pulls in stories within this project that do not have epics and do. 

Any guidance on how to write the jql for this. Do I need to put in the specific epic links for each one I want to pull in or is there an umbrella term I can use to pull any epic in that is within this board?

Hi @Abbie Skelly ,

First I just wanted to confirm that you're using Advanced Roadmaps (and not just Roadmaps)... if you are using Advanced Roadmaps then our usual recommendation would be that you have 2 issue sources - one for each project. However, you could just have one for cross-project JQL filter as an issue source.

However, I noticed that you're specifically asking about having both in a board. This is also pretty straightforward as you can just create a JQL filter for both projects and then create a new board for a project and use that filter. For example, a filter might look like this:

project = "Another Project" AND issuetype = epic OR project = "Example Project" AND issuetype = Story

When you create the board you choose the project you want it to live in.

I hope that helps!
