Issue Filter is not showing the Epic Name Edited

We have multiple epics under a project and we are not able to see or filter our Issues based on Epics they are tied to.  Why are the Epic Names not showing in the Issues Filter?

All of the issues are "Child issues" and showing on the Board and can be filtered by Epic name there, but in the issue filter, the column is just blank.

i'm guessing you are using a Next-gen project which does not support the Epic Name field yet. 

Yes it is Next Gen.  I guess we have to add a label to each issue so we can filter and sort.  Thanks

For those looking for how to show the epic name, the parent field can be used to show the assigned epic.

Go to Columns option near Search button on filter screen section and then choose an Epic Link value from the list like on attached screen.


thanks Michael -- it added another column, but still shows up as blank.  Assuming it is the issue with Next Gen,

After adding the Column for 'EPIC LInk' on the Issue Search, the result just shows blank column. Is this a feature in the New Gen JIRA Project? Strange because it seems to have broken a simple and very important feature of being able to view the EPIC Link in the issue search. Is there a way to change a New Gen type of project to the older one?

@Harneet Singh , correct that is what this thread is saying. There is an article that explains how to change from NG to Classic but I don’t have it at my fingertips. You can search the community and find other threads that will point you to it. Basically it is a ‘simple’ matter of creating a Classic project and bulk moving issues.

Any ETA for this capability in the NG projects?

I have the same doubt, any ETA?

Just coming off Summit. There was plenty of talk and focus on NG so clearly NG is a major initiative for the company. With that said, there is no public commitment to this  AFAIK. I would highly recommend using the feedback link if you have not already done so.

In my project is not an option to go from NG to Classic (due to business decisions), thank you anyway.
