Applying additional conditions to Epics in JQL is causing the Epic Panel to be empty.

When using the epic link JQL function, the board correctly filters the Epics I would like to see, however, the epics panel on the left hand side is visible, however there are no Epics listed. Which is....kind of backwards. 

There should be a function where you can filter only certain Epics into a board, but then still be able to see them in the panel, that way you can edit and filter during discussions and planning more efficiently. Obviously I could create quick filters but that seems overkill.

Epic links --> for stories , tasks which are linked to Epics 

Epic Name --> Is to display all epics only 


Board filter : all stories related to project

Quick filter 1 : Issue type = epic || for displaying epic only 

Quick filter 2 : epic link is not empty || which displays only tasks / stories linked to epic 

Quick filter 3 : epic link is empty || to show which are not linked to epic 

Is it a bit helpful in finding related information

Do your suggestion above allow the Epic Panel to be visible?

I should definitely clarify actually, I do not want to JUST look at Epics in the board. I want to see: 

- Certain Epics as per my filter

- All issues associated to those Epics

- Still be able to see the Epics in the Epic Panel

Hi @Elliot Jones ,

May I know what type of epics you need to display on board. Any condition ? You mentioned as certain epics ??

Hello! I have two boards. Both are agile scrum and both are in the same project. 

There are some Epics I do not need to display on one board, and vice versa. 

Hi ,

How did you separated two boards. 

Does boards using different JQL filters ?

If same board filter used , displaying epics on different boards is not possible. 


If you add any customized JQL Query like 

Project = abcd and component = Anvesh 

Project = abcd and component = Jones 

Like component you can use any field to differentiate the boards.
