Once all the work for an epic is completed, you should mark it as complete on the roadmap.
To complete an epic:
Select the epic you'd like to mark as complete.
Under Status, select Done.
You can find more info about epics here:
I did change the status of an epic to Done (several times back and forth to be sure), but I still see the epic on my board. It's automatically folded, but this is not enough, as done epics will clutter the board more and more. Can I make done epics disappear completely from the board?
Unless I'm missing something, it isn't possible to move epics to the rightmost column of the board, because epics never show up on the board.
It is possible to mark epics as "Done," but this doesn't cause them to disappear from the roadmap after 14 days (or ever).
Am I correctly understanding how epics work now?
I don't think there's been any update, but it is now possible to filter the roadmap by epic status, so you can make the ones marked "Done" disappear from the view. This is handy, but unfortunately you need to do it every time you come back to the page -- the filter setting doesn't persist -- or you need to bookmark the URL.
Is there a ticket in somewhere to get this resolved? I'm having the same issue - the roadmap is growing and growing. I've done the steps suggested (marking as done, moving to the bottom and filtering by To Do and In Progress) but would be great to not have to do this all the time!
Many of us have requested this seemingly basic update. The assumption would be you can use Jira for years. For those of us that use Epic and Agile regularly this needs to be urgently fixed. While you are at it @jirasupport Epic roadmap is a great idea but should be tied to the start and end dates of the children below it. I should not need to update the Epic with a start and end date. That is a good options. But a better use, and more dynamic, would be to take the dates of the children if they exists. PLEASE UPDATE!! Thank you for a good product. please keep making it better.
Jira is a great tool to use across different departments. Forget that paperwork – switch to Jira and get that tasks done smoothly. Marketing Jira allows for a complete digital transformation of you...
