I read the similar questions and work around from 2 years ago but no solution has been proposed. This is still very annoying to my team as we work through several closed Epics. The list will continue to grow as we go froward and will become even more annoying. Once the Epic is closed (and all related stories closed), how do we not see that Epic link when creating a new story?
We have reasons for keeping all closed stories and epics avail and the copy it off to a backup workaround is not acceptable to our team. Thank you very much.
To complete an epic:
Open the Epics Panel on the left
Click the drop-down arrow for your epic, and select Mark as Done.
This might be done while your epic is in progress status. Then you should not see this on the list unless you click "Show done epics" in the drop down list
This works if you were to take away the epic from the Epic panel, however I can still see it (even if closed, even if marked as done) in the Epic Field within the issue - would you know how to limit that view when you try to modify the already created task?
Hi all. I've tried everything. Status and resolution. But I still can see the Epic in the dropdownlist from the issue view. Even though I can't see the epic in the left panel from the backlog view anymore, I still can see from the right panel (issue quick view) or in the entire issue view (modal view or full view).
Any other idea guys? Is this a Jira bug?
Removing from Epic Links is still gathering interest.. Refer here:
Thanks @Bodavo !
As I said some comments above (and you liked it :) )
You have to change the 'Epic Status' editing the Epic itself.
- If you don't see the field 'Epic Status' on the epic, you will need to add it to the edit-screen in the screen scheme being used by the epic to be able to edit and change it.
At the moment I didn't find any way to hide accomplished epics.
What I did: Created a new task type named "Resolved Epic" also in purple icon.
When an epic is correctly done and tested, I click on the epic icon and change the task type from Epic to Resolved Epic.
To create a new task type in go in any task and click on configuration wheel at right up corner. You'll be sent to a field configurations, at left you can add a new task type.
👋 Hi there Jira Community! A few months ago we shared with you plans around renaming epics in your company-managed projects. As part of these changes, we highlighted upcoming changes to epics on...
