I want to add a quick filter (drop down list) on the kanban board of my project so I can filter by epic. I want to be able to see all the issues within the epic that is selected.
Hello @Linda Granado
Welcome to the Atlassian community.
You have posted your question in the Jira Service Management community. Can you confirm you are working with the native Board option in a Jira Service Management project?
Or are you actually working with a different type of project?
If you go to Projects > View All Projects, the project type will be specified in the Type column.
Jira does not provide a native method for creating a Quick Filter for a board that will present as a selection list. However in the boards for Software projects it should automatically present a selection list quick filter for Epic, like this:
Do you have any Epic issues created in the project?
Are any of the other issues associated to Epics as child issues?
Can you provide a screen image of your board?
This is a screenshot of my Kanban board within a project. You can see the issues labeled by Epic. For example, issue "Create job descriptions" is linked to the Epic "Recruitment". I am trying to add an epic filter at the top so I can filter by Epic and see all the issues.
You tagged your post as having the Cloud deployment type, but I think that is incorrect. Looking at your image I think that you are using the self-hosted project - Jira Server or Jira Data Center, rather than the Jira Cloud product.
If the URL for your Jira instance is https://something.atlassian.net then you are using Jira Cloud.
If it is not like that, then you are using Jira Server or Jira Data Center (self-hosted).
The answer I provided assumed that you were using Jira Cloud, based on the tags on your post.
Jira Server and Jira Data Center don't have a native feature to do what you want.
If you are willing to consider paying for a third party app, you might consider this one:
This is just one app that could give you the ability to have an option to filter the issues be a list of Epics. There may be others.
(Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with the vendor of that app and receive no compensation for suggesting it.)
