Epic filter in the backlog and link to the issue navigator

Hi the community,

I currently surprised by the following behaviour:

- In the backlog view, if i select on the left an epic i will only see the associated stories (which is nice),

- then: issue_navigator.png, Hence i'm expecting that the issue navigator will be opened showing me only the 2 stories out of 47,

- But finally i get in the issue navigator all the story without considering this filtering through epic.

For me it sounds like a bug but some could say it is designed as intended. Any opinion on that.

We use JIRA 7.12 server version.


I don't think it is a bug.


The 'View in Issue Navigator' function shows you the entire contents of the Sprint. It does not include any filters you have applied -- before clicking the icon.


The Backlog is a 'special sprint' for all issues where no Sprint is assigned.

This is, in my opinion, a little bit weird since in addition you have on the left a "clear all filters" link. We can then expect that what you will view on the issue navigator is related to the filter. For me this is misleading but i could understand that at the level of Atlassian it could be considered as "designed as intended".
