I just upgraded to Greenhopper 6.1. I'm excited to use the new Epic functionality on the Greenhopper planning board. With this upgrade, it resurrected some long-forgotten Epics that are now appearing on the left side of the planning board. I want to simply mark them as done since they're out of date and no longer relevant, but the option is simply not there.
I checked to make sure that the "Epic Status" custom field was added to the instance properly,which it was. It says that it correctly applies to the Epic issue type. I'm not sure why the menu option is missing. Even completely deleting the old epics doesn't seem to get rid of them.
Thanks to Omar for leading me in the right direction. I went into the Epic Status custom field configuration and saw that there were no options configured for it. This page: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/GH/Completing+an+Epic indirectly mentions that the two options should be "Open" and "Done", so I took these steps:
After taking those steps, I then saw the "Mark as Done" option and it worked when I selected it, setting the Epic Status field to Done for that epic. I don't know why the custom field options weren't configured properly in the upgrade, but I'm very glad I figured this out. I hope this is helpful to others.
My two cents too: you might want to check the Epic Status field properties. I've seen a case recently when these were broken (available values were assigned to a wrong Context), and fixing that returned the Mark as Done option to the board.
Thanks for the response. Looking at it more closely, I think my issue with deleting is completely separate. I did do a complete reindex to see if it helped this issue at all and it didn't. I just filtered out my old Epics, but even new ones that I create don't have the "Mark as Done" menu item.
I have exactly the same problem. The Epic Status field is present and I've re-indexed several times but I do not see the "Mark as Done" option for Epics. I also have a number of old, closed Epic issues that are clogging up the planning board.
Did you ever get an answer to the problem?
I am facing a similar problem.
- Only one "Epic Name" GreenHopper field available correctly
- "Epic Status" GreenHopper field is available in View and Edit screens with the 3 Default options (*To Do, In Progress and Done)
- Re-Indexing done
- Edit permissions set correctly
- GreenHopper Project Template set to use "Scrum" by default
I am still unable to see the "Mark as Done" option under the drop-down that appears.
