How to hide Epics from Kanban view?

I switched from Scrum to Kanban view and already had some Epics. They're now displayed in the To-Do lane as moveable blocks and don't want Epics to be displayed on the board. The stories are already displaying in which Epic they are by the displayed label and I want to keep that.

How do I hide those Epics from being on my Kanban board?

What you're looking for is the type field in JQL

To filter out epics: 

project = PROJECTNAME AND type != Epic ORDER BY Rank ASC

You can modify the board's filter to exclude Epics. What appears on the board is determined by the filter.

Could you be more specific where to find that filter or steps to apply that filter?

When you go to Boards / Configure, under the General tab, you'll see the filter. Changing and editing the filter is all covered in the doc: https://confluence.atlassian.com/agile/jira-agile-user-s-guide/configuring-a-board/configuring-filters

Great! That's all I wanted to do.

Thx it's been bothering me for a while and this fixed it.

Here is the JQL filter I used

project = <my project> AND ((issuetype = Epic AND status != Done) OR (issuetype != Epic)) ORDER BY Rank ASC

Had this same problem. Edit filter for board and add issuetype != Epic :)
