Hi @Andries Becker,
When you remove an Epic from a plan it will not delete the Epic from Jira, it will just be excluded from a plan. Therefore if you want to just see the work that you think you will get to then you can just exclude it (select the Epic then use the Bulk Actions menu and select Remove from plan). You can always add the Epic back at a later date.
I think a similar question as @Trudy Claspill though, which is what would you expect to happen within the rest of Jira? You could mark an Epic as on hold (i.e. maybe via status) but there is actually nothing to really stop it being worked on?
If you're looking for the work to not be considered by the auto-scheduling algorithm in Advanced Roadmaps the best way would be to put the Epic (and it's children) into a resolved workflow state.
So I am using the Advanced Road maps as reporting view for management in my company. Thus the requirement is that we can see what projects are being worked on and what is not being worked on or On Hold all together.
So if you look at an EPIC in the ARM I still want to display it as To Do but indicate it's inactivity.
