New board via filter - missing epics in pane

Hi All

Thanks to anyone that replies. Your help is appreciated.

I set up my new project board consisting of 2 teams and started adding the issues (epics, stories, tasks etc) into the backlog.

Team 2 was originally going to be part of the project however they now have a different timeline due to a priority call. I thought the sensible way forward would be to:

  1. Create a new scrum board for Team 2 as their sprints start & end dates will be different now; and
  2. As neither Team 1 or 2 share epics I thought it would be a nice clean divorce (if such a thing exists!)

I created a simple query i.e. project = XX and "Epic Link" in (XX-201, XX-212) ORDER BY priority DESC, update DESC

It all worked well however when I go to the newly created board and view the backlog I don't see the epics in the epics pane on the left hand side.  It's blank and says "All issues". I can create new epics which will be required. 

I can see the epic links on the right hand side of the backlog next to the story points and assignees.

Is there a way to see the relevant two epics above in the epic pane within the new filtered backlog?

I sense I might be missing a key concept of how the original board was created, and what filtering on boards is! <famous last words>

Your filter is not including the epics you want to see.

Epics do not have an Epic Link, so "and epic link in x/y/z" is excluding them.  You'll want to add something like "Or key in (XX-201, XX-212)"
