Epic Colour

Keyboard Shortcuts

You can select any issue and use the following keyboard shortcuts:

Show 'Done' Epics 

JIRA Software uses the 'Epic Status' field to denote whether an Epic is done or not. You can 'Mark as Done' via the Epic panel on the backlog.

Today, when you select 'Show Done Epics' under the Views dropdown on the Story Map, you will see all of those issues which are in the Epic Status of Done (as opposed to the JIRA Status Category). 


Status Category Filtering 

From the 'View' dropdown, in the top right you are able to select the three JIRA Status CategoriesTo Do, In Progress, Done.

Hide Epics

It is possible on our JIRA Server release to hide Epics using 'Quick Filters'. Simply create a quick filter that hides the Epics you no longer want to see and ensure that you have 'Apply quick filters' checked under the 'View' dropdown.
