Stories disappear from Agile board when 'Base Swimlanes on' is set to 'Epic'

I set up a Scrum board that should display planned stories grouped by the epic they belong to. The columns at the top of the board indicate that certain columns should contain stories, but I don't see any. In addition, I get a warning saying "No Issues are currently visible". The stories reappear when I set 'Base Swimlanes on' to 'No Swimlanes', but I want to group them into epic swimlanes.

What could be causing this unexpected behavior?

Already figured it out: I needed to include the epics in the Filter Query to do this.

Old post, but the answer is still valid, and resolved our issue today.

Hi Pieter,

It is hard to say without taking a closer look. Are all the workflow statuses mapped correctly to the board? Are you able to view all the issues when running the filter associated to the board in your issue navigator? 

Some screenshots of your board configuration would help laugh



I've already found a solution, but thanks for your help! :) I didn't know that the Filter Query was supposed to include the epics in addition to the stories that I want to display on the board.

Ah, okay, glad you were able to solve this :) Cheers!
