Is there a way to quick filter the Epics in the backlog view ?

Hi guys.

I am not good at JQL but I use Jira nonetheless :) 

Is there a way to add quick filter in may backlog view so that I can hide and show epics that were created in specific projects ... (because my board querry is set to gather multiple project tasks)

If any clarificatino is needed, please let me know :) image.png

Hi Fred  - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Have you created any Quick Filters? If not, go to the main board, click on the 3 dots in the upper right and select Board Settings

Then click on Quick Filters on the left. 

Thank you John.

Yes but which JQL formula would be appropriate to filter epics by projects they have been created into ?



John Funk Community Leader Mar 29, 2021

Quick filters can only work into the base board filter. So it can't include more projects than the board filter itself has. But basically, it will be issuetype = Epic

Hi John, Yes my board filter is already set to gather multiple projects .

But ideallly I would like a quick filter that displays only epics created in a specific project... Is that feasible ? 


John Funk Community Leader Mar 30, 2021

Sure - just create a filter like:

project = EXL and issuetype = Epic
