Missing switch to enable Epic Panel in Kanban Backlog Edited

According to this:

I should have a Switch in the Columns settings for my Epic Panel.

But that does not exist. Thus I cannot activate the panel.


Any help? What Am I doing wrong?

I don’t know what you mean by “switch” nor activate panel really. Are you just trying to set up a Kanban board? Can you give us more details with where you are stuck?

Uh, sorry. I did correct this - I meant Epic Panel.

What I want to have is:

  • Epic Panel in the Kanban Backlog, in order to assign Tasks easily to Epics.

Basically the same as you have in the Scrum Backlog.


I checked the documentation mentioned above, and what it says, that I should just activate the Switch "Use Epic Panel" in Board => Configure => Columns...

But that Switch doesn't exist.

What version are you on? Epics appears to have been introduced to server version 7.5.

v7.4.2... hmm.. Ok then, we need an update...

@Jack thanks :)

looks like it. probably a good idea as there have been quite a number of good changes since 7.4.

Please consider accepting the answer to close this issue if it achieved your goal.

Activate Kanban backlog first.

Oh, did some more research on it. And it is only available in the Cloud-Version... bummer :(

.. or does anybody know more about that?

I'm using the Cloud version and have the same issue!

Like Jiri Hana likes this

I'm using the cloud version and the Epics panel can be activated under Board settings > Columns > Epics Panel

Like # people like this

This says that you will see the "Epics Panel" switch, only if the Kanban backlog is enabled.  Not sure what to do on Scrum board.

Note: I am on Jira Cloud
