In one of our projects, there is an Epic that has suddenly appeared in a specific sprint on a Scrum board.
I've ruled out the following - so any insight would be greatly appreciated:
1. The other epics are not showing up and the filter has not changed. Epics are visible in the backlog with the Epic sidebar
2. The Epic that is showing up was created in May as an Epic, not converted from a story, so no sprint field was ever set. Our Epics do not have the sprint field - no value to delete
3. In a side by side comparison, it appears that the Epic is set up in the same way as the other Epics on the board
Would you please provide some info to help others ponder this one?
Thanks, and best regards,
Thanks for taking a look:
project = 12500 AND issuetype in (standardIssueTypes(), subTaskIssueTypes()) AND "Scrum Team" = Mobilitas AND status != Archived AND issuetype not in (Test, "Test Execution", "Test Plan", "Test Set") ORDER BY Rank ASC
Epic Status: "To Do", so it would not be marked as done
The stories within the Epic range have multiple statuses - some "To Do", some "In Progress", some marked "Done" - this is just like the other epics in the board which is why it's throwing me off as to why this appeared today.
I believe Epic is one of the standardIssueTypes... Not certain why this would start happening if there was not change. One thing to try would be to combine and simplify your issueType filter, something like:
project = 12500
AND issuetype IN (Story, Bug, Task, Subtask)
AND "Scrum Team" = Mobilitas
AND status != Archived
ORDER BY Rank ASC
If it shows after that, the filter cannot be the problem.
It's apparently not the filter - I even tested excluding just Epics and it did not move off the board. I'm still combing through the other Epics to identify the difference.
Any other thoughts on why this would be showing up but other Epics are not?
Are you showing items as swim lanes on your board? If so, please check the setting to see if the grouping is Epics. Although I would expect all stories/bugs with epics to show their parent epics in that case.
If that isn't it, I would look at the offending epic's change log to look for any surprising info/changes. Barring that, you may need to submit a support ticket to figure this one out. Sorry I could not be of more help.
