Filtering by Epic Removes All from Scrum Board

My scrum board has a filter of:

 

project = DTBTCD AND "Epic Link" != Interruptions ORDER BY Rank ASC

 

However, when I browse the backlog the Epic's column is now empty.Screen Shot 2020-09-28 at 11.59.25 AM.png

 

However if I change my query to:

 

project = DTBTCD ORDER BY Rank ASC

 

All the epics show up again.  My goal is to have a scrum board that filters out this epic but I'm unclear why the filter is effecting the backlog view.

 

BTW If I don't use "Epic Link" and instead "Epic Name", it doesn't show stories for those Epic's in either view.

Hi @Anthony Ross

With your JQL, Jira will check if the the Epic Link is not Interruptions. But this works only for the issues, that have an epic link. All issues without an epic link will also be filtered out.

So you have to check also  if there is no epic link.

project = DTBTCD AND ("Epic Link" != Interruptions or "Epic Link" is Empty ) ORDER BY Rank ASC

@Anthony Ross Try with project=DTBTCD and "Epic Link" != ABC-1 and "Epic name"!=Interruptions . This query will show other Epics, and also the stories/Task that are not associated with Epic ABC-1.
