How can i prevent new stories being assigned to DONE epics

When creating a new story, I don't want users to be able to assign items to epics that have a status of DONE. Is there any way to remove or filter out the completed epics from the drop down listing for Epic assignment?

@Zulfadli Noor Sazali Hello, I m looking for a solution to the exact same problem. I looked at the ticket on Atlassian and its marked as resolved. Any idea how to do that ? Thank you 

@Aisha M Looks like we got it resolved on Cloud and on Jira Server 7.1 - 

Which version are you on?

If you are still having trouble on the fixed version, may want to share some more details in a new Question or new Support ticket at

Have a good day!

Martin mentioned that the Epic that is marked as DONE in Epic Status field will not be part of the drop-down list.
