EPIC label won't appear on Backlog once Component is added to the board filter

We want to segregate a Scrum Board's Backlog by a Component. Initially the Epic labels were there. Once we add Component to the JQL the Epic labels disappear.

JQL with Component:

"project = "Code Force One" AND component = "Seal Team" ORDER BY Rank ASC"

JQL without Comment (and Epic labels show):

"project = "Code Force One" ORDER BY Rank ASC"

I have tried several variations of JQL to include the Component but no luck. The Epic label will not show if Component is in the JQL. 

It's a horrible design. WTH?

Hi Thomas,

This behavior is reported in JSWSERVER-16178.  Please take a look at the bug ticket and if you agree that is the same issue:

  1. Vote on the issue to add impact and be notified when the ticket is updated
  2. Follow the suggested workaround:

Explicitly add the epics to the board filter: project = TP AND ("Epic Link" in (TP-24,TP-25) OR issue in (TP-24,TP-25)) ORDER BY rank ASC

Hopefully this helps.

Cheers,

Branden

Thank you for the information. Will try that out.

Maybe the epics do not belong to any components and that's why they are being filtered out with that filter board.

Try changing the board's filter to:

project = "Code Force One" AND (component = "Seal Team" OR type = Epic) ORDER BY Rank ASC

The Epic issues all belong to the Component, and the issues expected all show up. They just don't show the Epic label when viewing the Backlog. 

I tried the JQL you suggest and it does work and displays the Epic labels in the Backlog. The only problem is it excludes issues not yet assigned to an Epic.

Interesting issue. I wonder if using a quick filter base on components would work and meet needs?
