So I have a Kanban board with Epics as swimlanes which works great. However, when viewing an Epic, it is easy enough to see the issues within it (and click these to expand the detail view to see them) but there isn't any means to viewing the actual epic.
Has anyone found a way around this? At the very least it would be handy to have a link from the swimlane itself, but failing that even a link in the details view would be ok, but it is completely missing:
(unlike within pretty much anywhere else in JIRA, the coloured background 'Test Epic' block isn't actually a hyperlink).
Any ideas? At the moment you have to resort to expanding the Epic swimlane, clicking on an issue link within the detail view, and then accessing the Epic via the view issue screen.
