Epics don't show up on the product backlog

Every story on my product backlog has an epic assigned. However some epics don't get shown on the right:

Why? Every story has an epic, and it's really annoying when some of the epics don't show. Makes it hard to see how stories group in the backlog :(

Can you check if your Epics matches the filter criteria of your board?

That's totally the problem, thanks.

Lame though since we have epics that apply to multiple teams, so if you're working on one of those epics the label won't show up on the board :(

Is there a way to create a query that will scoop up all the epics?

You can modify the filter query to include those epics. You might end up populating a custom field on the Epics to include the applicable teams but there is always a way to do it using JQL :)
