project board that excludes one Epic

I would like to exclude all the issues of just one epic from a project board.  The board has a filter for everything in that project key.  I attempted to add a quick filter that only included items where the epic name != "xyz_epic".  This resulted in NO items returned.  I tried using epic link as well. same thing.     How can I get all the issues not part of the xyz_epic?  Note: there are also issues without any epic at all.

if you want to be able to hide/unhide these issue use a quick filter - "epic link" != "my epic link"

If you want to never include on a board the ad the above into the board's filter

Hi @Scott Thurston

If your quick filter needs to visualise all issues not in Epic A, you need to consider both other Epics and no Epics - so the query might look like this:

"Epic Link" != A or "Epic Link" is empty

^ The reason you need both is because searching for issues where the Epic Link is not equal to Epic A means Jira is looking for another value in the field - not empty values. The additional parameters allows for a more rounded search.
