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.
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.
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
