When an epic is complete on a Next Gen project, how do you remove it from the Kanban board?

I am running epics in a next-gen kanban project.  Once all the stories associated with an epic i would like to remove the epic from the board?  Is there a way to do this?

@Casey Scheipeter , unless it has recently change Epics are not removed when done but again that may have changed as I know they are rolling out updates pretty frequently. Other issues, e.g. Stories, Tasks, etc will be dropped after being done for 14d. So it will be interesting to see if Epics follow suit.

Hi Casey,

Thank you for getting in touch with Atlassian Community!
This is currently on our roadmap and soon you will be able to hide a Done Epic.
You can find the details here.


Thanks Angelica, I clicked the link but not sure where to find updates. I'm having the same problem, I'm done a few epic, have marked them as complete and resolution status is resolved however, it still shows up on my board. 

Has Jira already updated next-gen so the epics would disappear in 14 days? If not, where can I view update status? 

Hi Maryam,

The update is on "Filtering improvements". 

Filtering improvements
Some improvements to filtering on the Board and Backlog to help you quickly find your work.

Filter lists will be sorted alphabetically
A search bar will be included when there are more than 10 items in the list
An issue type filter will be added by default
Epics marked as Done will no longer show in the epics filter list
It's possible to share a filtered view with others by copying the URL

In this case, it will not disappear from the board, but you can add the filter to do not show the Epic.

Any luck getting this really basic and necessary feature shipped yet?

My epic drop-down selector is riddled with completed projects. Makes my workflow feel disorganized.

I'm currently trying to hack my way around this by moving these epics to a new board once complete. No such luck, they still appear despite being marked done.

Any advice or update would be appreciated.

EDIT: I got the second board hack to work.

1. Create a second next-gen board. Name it something like "Completed Epics".
2. Once an epic has been completed from the first board working board, click "Move" and move the epic + children to the second board.
3. The epic no longer appears in any drop downs of the first working board. You still have access to all your tasks/children should you need them later.

Sounds like a decent workaround but we shouldn't have to do it.

Hi Angélica,
Is there any update on this? It's a frustration in our team's workflows that when we try to use epics, we are constantly avoiding the "done" ones manually with new filters, and when we try to add a story into an epic, we have to select from a long drop-down that includes the completed ones. Is there any workaround for this?



Hi Adam,

We still don’t have updates about board filters for Epics.

We have some feature requests suggesting the implementation of this ability:

Please, click on vote and watch to receive updates and feel free to add a comment on the features for our dev team to check.


@Angélica Luz any updates on this? 

Hello @Roman Balakin,

For the features that I shared on my previous response, only the Roadmap Epic filter in next-gen projects had an update. Please, check the comments for more details.

Is there any specific feature that you need an update? 

Please, make sure to watch and vote for the feature to receive notifications.


It's been a year. We are already having a cluttered epic filter view in the backlog after weeks of usage. Any updates or good simple workarounds?

Regards, JP

Hello @Jan-Pieter van den Heuvel,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

I saw that you created a ticket with our support and they shared another feature request:

The features I shared here previously here are related to Roadmaps and Boards and not the Epic Panel.

If you need an update about the feature Roadmap Epic filter in projects, please let me know. 

Kind regards,
